November 2020

  • Woodstream/Yule Hyde/ Perky Pet has discontinued the 736
  • Droll Yankees has discontinued the SIL-W and LC18
  • Many vendors continue to struggle to product products. Some have reported that they are choosing to only make top sellers.
  • Shipments for many suppliers out of India and China are having problems getting containers and space on vessels. This continues to slow inventory re-stocking
  • 1106 and 1082 Squirrel Busters are out of stock for a few more weeks.
  • Striped sunflower is in high demand from the confectionary market so supply is tight
  • White millet had a smaller crop so supply will be tight for the entire year. Otherwise new crop looks good.

  • 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

 

 

  • Most suppliers have been very slow to ship and allow us to re-stock. Many have noted a lack of staff that has caused them to delay.
  • Droll Yankees has discontinued the popular CJTHM15G finch feeder. They continue to sell the CJTHM15Y yellow finch feeder.
  • Droll Yankees has discontinued the BL-FIND finch feeder. We still have some in stock
