Product Description

4250 -- Homestead's (Traditional) Nectar Gem Hummingbird Feeder has a 16 ounce nectar capacity. This feeder is a complete hummingbird feeding system that includes nectar, vitamins and calcium. This pre-measured and pre-filled in feeder also includes an ant and bee guard. This revolutionary hummingbird feeder destroys mold and other aerobic pathogens that enter the feeder through the birds beak. We appeal to the market segment that realizes that hummingbird nectar needs to be changed every 3 days for health reasons. We also appeal to both red and clear nectar customers because this bag is red and contains no colorants in the nectar. Our soft feel feeding port mimics nature and the positive pressure bag provides effortless consumption. Made in USA.

Verified Purchase
I loved the idea of these lively decorated bags - what could be easier to feed our hummingbirds? Regretfully, they did not seem to appeal to the birds at all. They would fly around it, some settled on the little perch, but no birds drank from them at all. I bought 6 of them, and after trying 2 in our usual hummingbird feeder locations I ended up emptying out the nectar from the remaining bags into the plain old feeders from the discount store, and our hummingbird friends were happy once again. I wish they worked, the idea is simple and the design charming. Maybe if the "flower" had a yellow center like the typical feeders do it might have made a difference.

Well, I have now waited for a month for a hummingbird to drink some nectar. I saw one come and hover for a moment around it and fly away.
I don't think that the birds understand it any more than I do. How does the nectar come out? I've tried everything including sticking a pin into it pretending I am a hummingbird.
Nuthin'
Is it not opened properly? Is there a little secret valve in there that must be pushed?

Manufacturer - Help us morons, please!!!!

There are no instructions on it anywhere aside from the initial filling of the bag. The specialty bird store where I bought it doesn't have a clue.

I picked up couple o these free because the perches had broken off. They're not attached very well (at all) and with ANY rough handling they WILL break off. (with a little care and a paperclip or small screwdriver heated over a flame, you CAN "weld" the perch back on.) The perch needs a re-design. (manufacturer, take note!)

beyond that, the instructions are very sparse. "Unscrew the cap and fill with water" Only where it unscrews isn't clear. How to unscrew it without tearing the foil bag takes some care. The thread is tight and the places to hold onto are not easy to find. I'm still not sure the syrup and water I added mixed well. (fill with water then shake? whe it's "filled" - there's no room to shake the contents!)

Anyway, it's out there and ready for the hummingbirds.

What is still a mystery - is how the nectar comes out. With a "normal" hummingbird feeder, the rigid bottle/revervoir holds the nectar in by vacuum. Not so with the flexible container of this feeder. Is there a "valve" or the like to hold it in? Dunno. I can't even find a manufacturer web site to look it up. (I looked under "[...]" which is what the package says.)

I can't recommend this item at this time. I *hope* it will work, but I have no reason to believe it will. The packaging didn't help AT ALL. Sorry to be negative - but at "free" - I might have paid too much!

I'm surprised to hear everyone is having problems with hummingbirds drinking from this Homestead feeder. Maybe it was beginner's luck, but this was my first hummingbird feeder on a hanger outside my kitchen window. The previous owner obviously put a hummingbird feeder there too because after a couple days of my feeder hanging out there, we had hummingbirds sipping away. One at at time, all times of the day. It's been great.
It did drip at first and I was happy it stopped because I didn't want ants on the concrete porch underneath it.
My first feeder emptied and I went to look for anther at the store I purchased it from and they were out so I'm so happy to see it on Amazon. Because they were out and I was in desperate need of nectar before the next day, I bought a more expensive, clear glass hummingbird feeder and unfortunately had to use the red colored nectar so that the hummingbirds would see there was a plentiful supply of nectar again.
Problem is that it's been one full day and not one hummingbird has visited and sipped from the new feeder. I think they might like the bright red colored bag....it is their favorite color afterall.

I read up on hummingbirds and found out they are extremely territorial so I'm hoping that even though they didn't have nectar for one day while I was shopping for a replacement, they will come back to my yard (their territory) and drink up. I'm buying another one of these Homestead traditional Nectar feeders just in case they never make friends with my new expensive, glass one.

I've read the reviews here on Amazon & am very surprised to see that most are negative. I've had feeders in the past & made the same nectar I always have: 1 part sugar to 4 parts water, bring to a boil & let cool. This feeder is perfect for 2 cups water to ½ cup sugar. I hung it out on my front porch & within 2 days, they were fighting over it. I've read that you should mix your nectar 3 to 1 for the first week, to really attract them, but I forgot to & evidently I didn't need to. I would definitely recommend this feeder & plan to get a couple more myself, maybe it will keep them from fighting over it so much.

These bags work great! They will leak over time though but if your patient the Hummingbirds love it! Just add water to the bag so you can mix the nectar thats inside and then hang it close to a wall like I did and then watch the hummers eat. Sometimes it takes them awhile to get the hang of it. They will even poke their skinny beaks all around it until they find the flower hole but be patient they will! I've had green back and red back hummers throughout the day, lots of them!!!!!!!!
