Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SteveVA Pretty feeder, the bigger birds struggle to feed though
I hung this off a branch in my backyard in a squirrel-proof spot. Within no time, I had blue jays and cardinals scoping it out. It spins a little on the wire and small birds can land fairly easily. The blue jays and cardinals could not land for long, I think the perches are too short. When they land, they are in an awkward sideways position and stay briefly before flying off.
Its taken a little while for the birds to get used to it but they are managing. I may alter the perches a little and plan to get a pole to hang it on so it is more sturdy.
The design is pretty nice and it seems it will last a few years. It is easy to open the feeder for refills.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Governor It's going to the birds
This copper bird feeder can feed up to 4 birds at a time with access from 4 different sides. It only took about 5 minutes after handing the feeder to get several sparrows feeding on the feeder. There was no installation required only to hang the feeder in a location of your choice. I put wild bird seed in this feeder and have always had birds feeding and making great sounds.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by breynold2 Everyone's eating where they should be! Birds at the feeder... Squirrels on the ground.
I really enjoy feeding the birds and I like this Perky-Pet copper chalet feeder. It's easy to fill with the sure-lock top and holds about 3 lbs of seed (more feeding, less filling). It looks great and works well for feeding smaller birds like chickadees, sparrows, titmouses, and finches. I've even seen a pair of cardinals on the perch. I have yet to find this feeder dominated by squirrels, grackles, and blackbirds like my last feeder. And while not entirely squirrel proof, it does a good job of keeping them at bay. The sure-lock top keeps squirrels out of the seed chamber and the copper top is too slippery for them to hang upside down and get to the perches. The squirrels have resigned to occasionally tapping the hanging wire to get seeds to fall to the ground, and then running down to get them. They don't get much though.They spend most of their time feeding on the ground which is fine by me (my other half insists all creatures get fed).
One thing I'm not crazy about (and why this gets 4 out of 5 stars) is that when I start filling the feeder, a little seed falls out the bottom. Once the seed is above the openings, it's fine though. This isn't a big deal since I consider that "squirrel feed," but refilling before the feeder is completely empty wastes less seed.
Overall, I really like this feeder and I can tell my feathered friends do as well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by UpgraderGirl Pretty feeder for pretty birds!
This feeder is lovely! Wonderful quality/very well made. I hope to see it in my tree for years. The birds don't care about aesthetics one bit, but to me, it's nice to look at. It gives birds ample room to perch and feed and works with all types of feed, including larger nuts. However, it is definitely not squirrel proof - haha! That's alright with me. Being in a city, I enjoy the squirrels as much as I do the birds. The wire hanging apparatus is thicker than it appears in the picture and heavy duty enough to handle birds, squirrels and winds with 40mph gusts like we had last week. It also has a small finger-button stop so that you can prop the roof/lid open for easy refilling and it's hard-plastic windows slide right out for easy cleaning. With the right feed, this pretty feeder attracts some pretty birds. I can't seem to time it right to capture them on camera, but the robins and cardinals are gorgeous this spring. Well worth the price!

The birds really flock to this feeder that I put in my backyard. There are all types from the smaller wrens to Blue Jays and Cardinals and even the larger Doves. The copper has a tendency to turn a bit after prolonged exposure to the elements. Unfortunately, it's not squirrel proof. They have a tendency to jump onto the feeder. It's best to not fill it completely so that the birds will get their share,

This bird feeder looks great. It shines in the sun and adds a bit of glitz to the garden. The birds seem attracted to it more than my other feeders, possibly because of the fact that it is very visible. There is a plastic window on the sides of the feeder to let you know how much seed is left inside. I hope the squirrels don't notice it, because I think that they could chew through it readily. I have installed mine in a somewhat squirrel proof location.

The feeder had too many loose parts. The panels really didn't stay put in the feeder

Not only do we find this antique copper chalet bird feeder hanging from our tree attractive, but so do all the small birds in the neighborhood! There is constant activity during all day light hours and we seem to have to refill this feed at least every 2 days. It is well made and another six or so inches of height would actually be desirable to hold double the delectable treats for our Avian feathered friends!
