Easy to Use - The gravity fed Egg Bird Feeder is easy to use. The stoneware egg is suspended by a vinyl coated wire. The egg supports two aluminum poles that suspend the aluminum base in the center of the egg's bottom opening. Bird food dispenses from the egg into the base and birds eat from the base until the egg is empty. To fill with bird seed you turn the Egg Bird Feeder upside down and take out a pin in the middle of the base, remove the poles and dish, and fill. The feeder holds ten cups of bird food.
Beautiful & Durable - The beautifully finished glossy stoneware egg and aluminum assembly are perfect for the extremes of outdoor weather. The stoneware egg's durable finish will withstand yearlong temperature extremes. The aluminum base, poles and vinyl coated hanging wire are rust resistant. The base has four small drainage holes to prevent water accumulation in bird food.
Gray Squirrel Proof - The glossy stoneware egg shaped surface of the Egg Bird Feeder deters gray squirrels. Gray squirrels will not be able to eat from the feeder if it is hung at least three feet away from surrounding surfaces. Squirrels simply can't hold onto the surface of the egg and the base is not large enough to support them.
Care - Wipe clean stoneware and aluminum surfaces with a damp cloth. Once a month we recommend cleaning the feeder with a 10% bleach to water solution. Allow the solution to set on the feeder for ten minutes, drain off the solution, and then rinse thoroughly. Allow the feeder to completely dry before refilling it. If a feeder becomes moldy, scrub it thoroughly with the 10% bleach to water solution using a stiff brush. Once it is clean, clean the feeder as above. If you live in an area that freezes please make sure the interior of the Egg Bird Feeder remains dry during the critical times of year when it freezes and thaws. Damage to the egg may occur during the freeze/thaw cycles if the interior is wet.
