  • Woodstream/Perky Pet changed the 481 to a news style known as the 481F. As the 481 stock depletes we will merge into the new design. The difference is their new "Flexports". Note: The companion sunflower feeder (480) remains the same as it has in the past.

  • All suppliers are reporting difficulty fulfilling orders. Many say:
    • they cannot get enough staff
    • offshore manufacturers cannot get staff
    • raw materials are difficult to secure (plastic, sheet metal, wire rod, and even corrugated cardboard for boxes)
    • shipping containers are short and vendors have to bid to get them
    • there is a shortage of ships for container
    • unloading at ports is difficult due to demand and lack of staff
    • shut downs in the US, Mexico, China and India
    • this will likely continue through the summer
