Here’s what our customers are saying about Droll Yankees…
I own four Droll Yankees feeders: the green Yankee Flipper and three finch feeders of different lengths. Droll Yankees is the only feeder I would ever purchase...a great product, great service when you need it, and a warranty that is honored as written. Other feeders may look like Droll Yankees and cost less, but they usually don't last a season. It's a win-win...great product and made in the USA, I couldn't ask for more!!!
Utterly fantastic. [Droll Yankees products] withstand weather, squirrels, and everything else nature sets upon [them]. Occasionally, nature's fury (squirrels) have damaged a few parts leaving the device in need of repair. Without question or hesitation, Droll Yankees sends out replacement parts and we (and the birds) are on our way. Thank you!
I have two Droll Yankees bird feeders in my yard. I also have two other brands of similar bird feeders. I have to fill the Droll Yankees feeders twice as often as the other feeders. My birds prefer your feeders over all others.
You have a great company, products, and customer service...I will continue to buy [your feeders] and recommend your company to everyone who needs bird-related products.
Thank you so much for your excellent customer service group. We have enjoyed your quality products for many years and have four of your bird feeders presently. I received your 8" thistle mini tube in great condition and in a timely period after I spoke with one of your representatives. I certainly do recommend your Droll Yankees products to all my family and friends because of your exceptional quality product and outstanding customer service.
Droll products and customer service are top notch. Both are highly recommended.
It is refreshing to see a company that stands behind their products. I will be a repeat customer.
We love our Droll Yankees feeders. On the rare occasion that a part was damaged by squirrels, the Droll Yankees support staff responded to my email in less than an hour with kind, courteous, and quick attention. In my opinion, Droll Yankees products ARE 'the world's best'!
Droll seems to be a "rare bird," pun intended!
You make the very best products! We have two tube feeders (one about 25 years old and another about 10) that are the favorites of the birds and have outlasted a couple other feeders that were bought locally. They would only feed from them when the Droll Yankee feeders were empty! Thank you once again for making such long lasting and popular products for our birds!
I recently saw one of your feeders in a store, and after looking it over carefully, I bought it. I was very impressed with the quality of construction and the materials used. It is now hanging in a tree in my front yard getting constant use. I threw out the feeder I bought last year - made in China - that I had to repair more than once. Yours was more expensive but I was impressed that it was Made in USA. I want to support American companies and I was glad to pay more for a QUALITY product and keep American jobs here. Keep up the good work and I'll look for your products again!
Onyx Clever Clean
For years I had several wire mesh feeders that rusted out and wasted a lot of expensive Nyjer seed. I sent an inquiry to Droll Yankees' Customer Service about the Ring Pull and Onyx Clever Clean Nyjer Feeders. I went with the 18" Onyx Clever Clean. I am extremely pleased with the build quality and the ease of cleaning. This past rainy season I enjoyed dry seeds which attracted more birds than in years past. I highly recommend the Onyx Clever Clean.
The birds love it and the squirrels think they are at an amusement park.
I asked for and received a "squirrel proof" feeder (Yankee flipper) for Christmas from my children. I am amazed that it really works, I live in East Texas where there are a lot of wildlife & I have been trying to out wit the squirrels for 30+ years. I think you finally did it. The birds are loving it as they don't have to wait in line for the squirrels to finish on this one & I love watching the birds as well. Thanks to whoever came up with this idea.
Our Yankee Flipper is the source of endless amusement as the local squirrels attempt to find a way to outfox the feeder. Here in Virginia our Confederate grey squirrels just hate to be bested by anything Yankee, but in this battle the Yankee is clearly winning.
We used 2 other "squirrel-proof" feeders and the relentless critters would try and try and eventually would find a weakness that they could exploit. We purchased this Yankee Flipper feeder after my 40th birthday. After 1 summer of use, you can see from the top that there is no stone unturned in the attempts of our critters, but this feeder is stronger and is performing perfectly! Thank you for making a superior product! I now have Mother's and Father's Day gifts in mind for our families!
How I wish we had had a camera at hand when a squirrel was holding desperately by his fore paws to the bird perch of your feeder and being slung round and round. The illustration in your literature is no exaggeration! I think this is the fifth year since our son gifted us with the feeder, and the batteries are still good and the bearings smooth. (Batteries do have to be recharged twice each season.) Congratulations on both design and quality.
It works! Most 'squirrel-proof' feeders don't. The price put me off at first, but it was well worth it. 1) It has run perfectly for 10 years, then just needed a new rechargeable Power Stick, which was easily obtained. 2) It has enormous entertainment value, watching the squirrels hang on desperately until they're flung off into the yard. 3) Very well constructed, nothing flimsy.
The finches, Carolina Wrens and Cardinals love the feeder, it is the most favorite of the Flipper, Dipper, and Finch Flocker.
Amazing! What else can I say? Recently the perch on my Yankee Flipper had broken. All that it took was a phone call to Droll and a new perch was in the mail. If that wasn't amazing enough, the perch arrived in less than 48 hours. The Droll line of feeders may be a little more expensive than your average bird feeder, but with a company like Droll backing their product 100%, I would have no problem spending the extra dollars on future feeders.
Dear Droll Yankees, I have purchased a number of your bird feeders over the years, and always found them to be an excellent quality product. As the saying goes; "Quality leaves no regrets". My most recent feeder purchases have been of your "Yankee Dipper" squirrel proof feeder. As the name implies, this is a squirrel proof feeder. The squirrels have now learned to feed on the ground only. I like this feeder so much, it is the only one that I use. I save on seed, and still get all of the desirable birds. The feeder, though not cheap, is an excellent value. I chose to give these feeders as Christmas gifts to family members, and they too are now in awe of the outstanding quality and squirrel proof performance.
This product is amazing and the customer service matches. The Dipper has successfully saved my bird food for the birds, [and] fought off pesky [squirrel] attacks repeatedly.
I will only buy Droll Yankees feeders. They are beautiful, the only feeders that really ARE squirrel-proof...[Other] feeders close in price fall apart after a few seasons; you cannot beat Droll Yankees' construction and their Lifetime Warranty. The tube of my feeder cracked after five, six years. I emailed the company and had a replacement within a week. My yard is once again full of beautiful birds.
Great feeder! Best gift I ever gave my wife! Customer service couldn't be better. Period!!!
Over the years I have purchased more bird feeders than I care to remember, but since discovering Droll Yankees products, I buy no other brands. Of the many different Droll Yankees bird feeder models, my favorite is the Yankee Dipper. The squirrels in my yard are numerous and ingenious, but they are confounded by the Dipper. So on behalf of my family, who all enjoy bird watching and all my backyard birds, thank you, Droll Yankees, for developing so many wonderful squirrel-proof bird feeders.
We have two of these feeders because they work so well - the squirrels just can't get into them, as much as they try, and they try every day! The seed capacity is big and sturdy. Of all the squirrel-proof feeders we have tried, these are the ONLY ones that are actually squirrel proof. They also discourage larger nuisance birds.
I've had a Yankee Whipper for several years. It's well-made, sturdy and really works to keep the squirrels from getting to the bird seed! My feeder has teeth marks in the metal lid where the squirrels have tried to gnaw their way in, and I've had fun watching them try - with no success - to hang onto the perches. I also like the fact that the feeder holds a significant amount of seed, which means I don't have to refill it as often. I highly recommend this feeder!
I have had feeders for 30 years and last fall purchased this amazing feeder that the squirrels have literally given up on! I now have the happiest bevy of birds that always go home happy! Thanks Droll Yankees!
My parents bought me my A6F Droll Yankees feeder when I was 15 years old...I have taken my feeder with me from NY to AZ to CT and now live in MD. I am 45 now and still enjoy my feeder more than ever. My 4 year old son is just as crazy about the birds as I am. We fill the feeders together and he knows the birds extremely well...I am confident that he will take the enjoyment that we share and carry it over to the rest of his life. I hope someday that I get the pleasure of enjoying a relaxing day in my son's backyard watching the birds with him and my grandchild, on the Droll Yankees feeder that was once mine.
I do not remember when we received this tube feeder but it must have been about 20 years ago when we moved into a new home. The birds love it and it has survived many a squirrel attack...After twenty years of weather and squirrels, the bottom finally broke off the feeder. When I contacted Droll Yankees I was delighted to learn they would replace the broken tube! I now wonder why I have spent money on other feeders when the Droll Yankee feeder has outlasted them all several times over! Definitely a quality product, a good value for money spent, and with great customer service! Thanks!
This feeder is the most popular station in my yard, and we feed and water everybody...the Droll Yankees A-6 appears to be a bird favorite and attracts more varieties of birds than any other brand of feeder I have been hanging. Using a combination of safflower hearts, sunflower hearts, and black oil sunflower seeds, I get house finches, goldfinches, chickadees, titmice, wrens, cardinals, blue jays, an occasional grosbeak...it's a pretty amazing little place. The ports and perches seem to be more comfortable than those on my other feeders; I fill this one two, sometimes three times a day in the summer and winter seasons.
I do not remember where or when I bought this feeder. But it was before I got grey hair and used a cane to go down to my bird feeder.
I bought my Droll Yankees feeder [in October 2000] and it has served me well all these years. I have bought and thrown away 5-10 other feeders in the same time period. I can't say enough about this feeder.
B-72 & B-7F
Without a doubt the best feeder I have ever owned. Within 30 minutes of filling them, the birds started feeding. This feeder has attracted sparrows, finches, cardinals, blue jays, red-headed woodpeckers, orioles, and even green quaker parrots in TX. I have had my oldest B-7 for 8 years now and it still looks great. I have tried numerous other feeders, but none compare to the Droll Yankees brand for outstanding quality materials and workmanship. Best of all, the birds absolutely love the B-7. If you want a bird feeder that will last and last, AND attract a variety of birds, get a Droll Yankees B-7.
These are the most remarkable feeders I have ever owned. I have used them both for over 20 years and have just purchased two more of the same feeders in order to expand my feeding...These feeders are built to last, and they do. I love them all.
New Generation Feeders
Your products and warranty are first rate and I have over 7 of your feeders. Attached is a photo of goldfinches feeding on two of your finch feeders in my backyard (New Generation 36" Finch Flocker and New Generation 15" Finch Flocker). The first feeder shows 18 birds on 20 possible perches, and the second feeder has five birds on six possible perches.
This bird feeder brings in a remarkably diverse collection of birds especially woodpeckers. It doesn't need filling often, I think because of the density of the peanuts. The squirrels can't seem to extract the peanuts through the mesh and in my case, except one persistent squirrel, they seem to have given up. You've got to love this company. They really stand behind their products.
Ring Pull Feeders
The finches love this feeder and it is always so busy, so I need to purchase another one! Love it and they do as well.
Dorothy’s Cardinal Feeder (DCF)
I own two Dorothy's Cardinal Feeders and they are by far the best bird feeders I have ever owned. The large dome keeps the bird seed in the tray dry, it holds a lot of bird seed and it is very easy to clean. Thanks for producing such a great feeder!
This feeder is the best I have ever owned. All the birds love it including titmice, chickadees, finches, woodpeckers, cardinals, bluebirds, nuthatches, doves, and more. The food stays dry and fresh. Only when in downpours with the wind blowing has the food been wet or damp. If it does get damp or wet this feeder is super easy to clean and maintain. I love this feeder and if I had to do it over again I would have only purchased this feeder.
Little Flyer 4 (LF-4) Hummingbird Feeder
We've enjoyed visits from hummingbirds throughout the year ever since we put the feeder on our deck. Love it. Easy to clean and attracts the lovely, fascinating little birds...Thank you!
I have tried SO many other hummingbird feeders over the years - that is, until I bought a Droll Yankees! I would not buy any other feeder now. The feeders are incredibly easy to CLEAN and fill (you even get a little cleaning brush with the feeder). They can't leak! No sticky, red puddle on our decks. Last but not least - HUMMINGBIRDS LOVE THESE FEEDERS! These feeders are so great that I buy them as gifts - my gifted friends are equally impressed. AMAZING customer service!
I had the occasion to drop by Droll Yankees and speak to a couple of their employees. Their knowledge of the products and pleasant helpfulness was greatly appreciated. The customer service provided was beyond expectation. Droll Yankees Inc. is a model for American business! Exceptional company, exceptional people.
The Droll Yankees staff were so helpful, prompt and solved my problem immediately. I'm not used to that kind of immediate and professional customer service anymore. I was both pleased and amazed...it is very reassuring to know that the company you are dealing with not only stands behind their products but is anxious to make everything right. Much appreciated!
We have an old W-1 feeder that both the birds and the squirrels love. It has been gnawed on, knocked down countless times, and used as a roost in bad weather. As a result, the suction cup mounting bar (which I repaired many many times) finally gave up the ghost. I contacted Droll Yankees and explained my plight. They are true to their word and sent me a replacement quickly. What a thrill to find a company that hasn't outsourced their product to maximize the profit margin and still has exemplary customer service. Reminds me of times gone by. Thank you, Droll Yankees.
Your Customer Service is the gold standard. I received a replacement for my broken base along with easy instructions and I'm back in business. Thanks for your prompt and friendly handling of my 'situation.
I received a Droll Yankees feeder for Father's Day in 1994 and it's still feeding our Canyon Critters today. Recently we found a hole in the tube and suspected a Western Scrub-Jay. We contacted Droll Yankees to see if we could purchase a replacement tube for the feeder and they replaced it at no cost. Their superior customer service prompted us to purchase two more feeders. Thanks, Droll Yankees.
Dear Bird Friends, it is so good to have my Yankee Flipper up and going again down here in the South. It has made the birds so happy, also. It was so nice of you to send me the parts I needed at no charge to me. What a joy to do business with a company that puts customer satisfaction high on its list of things to do. Thank you so much and best wishes to you and your company.
Our repaired 15" CJ tube feeder received here - we're happy, our birds are happy. Thanks for such swift action!
What a pleasant and unexpected surprise it was to be told that the units were represented to be "squirrel-proof," that the mechanism had apparently been redesigned, and, of course, Droll Yankees would replace the mechanism with a redesigned unit and without cost...no service, handling fees or postage required. Wow! ...Your representative was sympathetic and consoling. When she realized that I had one unit that had not as yet yielded to the onslaught of hungry squirrels, she offered to send me three - not the requisite two, but three - replacement mechanisms...again without charge. Wow! Wow! Wow! This letter is therefore to express my appreciation for the courtesy that you have extended and to compliment you on your customer service and business integrity. Not once did the individual to whom I spoke ask for proof of purchase or question the circumstances that gave rise to my calls. You (the company) were responsive, gracious, understanding and honorable...Thank you. Your integrity is most refreshing. You have a loyal customer!
I got my two LF-2 hummingbird feeders out of winter storage, and was disappointed to find both cracked and unusable. I called Droll Yankees to ask about purchasing replacement parts, but instead, they upgraded my feeders to LF-4's. I had my feeders within a week, and the hummingbirds are loving them. Droll Yankees' customer service is top notch.
