DROLL YANKEES ONYX CLEVER CLEAN® REMOVABLE BASE FEEDERS
OFFER A WHOLE NEW TWIST ON CLEAN!

In December, Droll Yankees Inc.® launched their new line of tubular bird feeders equipped with removable bases. The Onyx Clever Clean design expresses the state of the art in bird feeders through superior quality and ease of use. The twist and release base allows a clean fresh fill every time, which helps prevent the growth of mold toxins that are harmful to the birds. Prior to refilling the feeder, a simple twist of the wrist removes the base so that debris and chaff can be cleared. Then another twist locks the base in place and the feeder is ready to accept bird food.

dy-onyzThe focus on cleaning bird feeders was initiated by Droll Yankees in 1995 when they introduced the first bird feeder cleaning brush to the market. Droll Yankees feeders have always been designed to come apart for thorough cleaning. Company President Betsy Puckett commented, “Raising awareness about the need to keep bird feeders clean has been an ongoing campaign. The new Onyx has been in development and testing for years to ensure that the details are right and that the Droll Yankees version of a removable base feeder is superior to all others. It’s a product that we are very proud of.”

The Onyx Clever Clean feeders come in 3 heights – 12”, 18” and 24” – and are available in Sunflower/Mixed Seed or Nyjer versions. The Onyx name derives from the deep black, powder coated metal parts that surround the seed ports and cap the ends. A chrome accent shows off the inner bar of the Comfort Perches, a perch design that attracts more birds. The staggered port configuration insures fluid seed flow and optimum viewing potential from every angle. Suggested retail pricing ranges from $39.99 to $59.99, depending on the size.

The Onyx feeders and all Droll Yankees products are available through quality Lawn & Garden Distributors. An added value for the independent retailers – Droll Yankees products are not sold to Wal-Mart®, Target®, Home Depot®, Lowes® or K-Mart®.
