I use the heated hum feeders too. This is the first season I am using
them. I am running two heated feeders and two regular feeders, to cut down
on feeder domination by Hercules, the top male.​ When the temp goes down I
plug in the heated feeders and take the regular feeders indoors until
things warm up again. This system has been working quite well, so far.

forward incoming Tweeters mail to my comcast account because my comcast
address gets bounced by Tweeters. I don't check gmail very often.)
