"squirrel-proof" bird feeder

I bought a new bird feeder a few months ago. I mainly bought it because it was advertised as being "squirrel-proof"... It's made so that too much weight on the perch lowers the perch and closes off access to the bird seed. I thought the idea was ingenious (and the bird feeder cute) and since I'm tired of the squirrels eating everything in sight (including the chicken feed!) I bought it.

 I looked outside the other day and had to laugh at the resourcefulness of our squirrels...

Who knew he could stretch that far?

I have since moved the feeder another foot or so away from the trunk of the tree, and the squirrel is back to hanging out with the chickens, eating their food!
