I ordered a $262+ bird feeder on a kickstarter Mar2022 and I still haven't received it yet. I understand covid 19 (China was hit bad) and it was a big set back for everyone, but it's still ridiculous that they are still are trying to sell more orders by opening "secret stashes" of pre promised orders. 09/06/22 I sent an email to bird buddy and I was notified the next day with a shipping date of Nov 22. I hope it gets here before Christmas.
I should have more patience with these start up company's. Maybe you could use your "secret stashes" to catch up with pre existing orders instead of getting more new orders too get out of your bad reputation (Nobody has received one yet that I know of)
