We bought a 30" B7 feeder about 25 years ago and it has been used and abused! I decided to see if I could revive it. I ordered a replacement B72 tube. I was amazed that it was still available and equally amazed at the quality of components used to make the feeder. I was able to completely disassemble and rebuild using all original hardware and the new tube. Its not often you fine well made equipment and even rarer to able to replace parts after such a long time. Thank you

Please! For the sake of the birds, keep your feeder clean! Dirty feeders spread disease. Soak all parts in a 50/50 solution of white vinegar and water. Use a Droll Yankees Bird Feeder Brush to brush away grime inside the tube.

    I bought this a year ago but haven’t used it because it has a hole in the bottom and I cannot find a tray that fits under it. Any suggestions? My classic 25 year old two perch model is going strong! It has a solid bottom. Marian

    • Droll Yankees

      Hello Marian,
      Thank you for contacting Droll Yankees. Please check the bottom of your feeder for a clear plastic seed baffle. This baffle prevents the seed from going past the bottom pair of feeding ports and out the hole in the base. The threaded hole serves as a way to pole-mount your feeder or attach a seed tray. If the clear plastic seed baffle is for some reason missing, we would be happy to send you a replacement. If you have any additional questions or concerns, please call our Customer Service Department at 1-800-352-9164 and any one of our Customer Service Reps will be happy to assist you. Our hours are 7 am – 4:30 pm Mon-Fri (EST). Thank you for flying with our flock, and happy birding!

    Just received and hung my B-72 feeder. Holds so much feed that I’m hoping I won’t need to fill it too often. I did have trouble inserting the metal perches as the holes in the tube were a bit too tight. I would have broken the feeder tube if I pushed any harder. Used a drill to carefully expand the holes just enough that the pins slid in smoothly and still tight.

    • Droll Yankees

      Hi Bob,
      Thank you for contacting Droll Yankees. We are sorry to hear you are having difficulties installing the perches on your B-72 feeder. We recommend place the perch rods in the freezer for 20-30 minutes for easier insertion.
      If you continue to experience any difficulties assembling your feeder, please call our Customer Service Department at 1-800-352-9164 and any one of our Customer Service Reps will be happy to assist you. Our hours are 7 am – 4:30 pm Mon-Fri (EST). Thank you for flying with our flock!

    We bought ours over 35 years ago, and it is still going strong. We initially bought it when we lived on the coast of Texas and during a storm two South American parrots were blown into our yard. They kept breaking off the perches on our cheaper feeders, so we made a leap of faith and bought this one. It worked and has been with us through several moves, and has survived hurricanes, freezing rain, snow, and record breaking hot temperatures. Best product ever sold!

    I have had four of the B72 feeders for at least twenty years. These are mounted 2×2 on12′ high 4×4’s with a long can type squirrel baffle. We feed birds all year round here in S.C. lots of Cardinals, Tufted Titmice, Red and yellow Finches etc. Best feeder made. Re-built them once after a hurricane. Excellent product!

    I bought two of these for my house. I was tired of feeling the smaller feeders multiple times. I have many cardinals, finches and Orioles at these feeders. The squirrels have given up hope on these feeders. Quality made product and easy to put together.

    This is the best feeder I purchased.
    It’s fun to see a dozen birds at once feeding from it.
    I have sunflower seeds in it.
