Avian X Breeder Hen Leaking??
« on: April 29, 2016, 09:30:06 PM »
Does anyone know why my Avian X Breeder Decoy leaks??? This is the second one I bought and about after 2 hours the thing loses air. I can't be that big of idiot or that unlucky on this decoy. I am tired of returning them. Are they suppose to lose air after time. My Jake stays pretty intact after blowing it up. What am I doing wrong, HELP !!!!! Anyone else with issue please let me know.

I found out that my jake and hen both are leaking where the decoy stake goes in. I'm going to attempt repairs this weekend with shoe goo. Just a guess but I'll bet that's where yours is leaking as well.

I put some seal all, just something found cheap. It stopped the leak. Now going to spray some great stuff to make sure never leaks. I'm fine with leaving mine inflated all the time.

I had a first generation that failed after two years and wouldn't hold air. The plug came out ofte top of it where the tip of the steak rests. I called them to see if they'd fix it and they sent me a new one straight away. I think I had it in less than a week. They sent a shipping label and I returned the defective decoy in the box they sent the replacement in. I'd recommend calling rather than email. I found the CS to be excellent. God willing, the new one will hold up. I'm considering a jake for my spread.

Hey FX thanks. I called them as you suggested and I got a representative by the name of Ashley. She was great!!! I sent her the receipt and she immediately replied with sending me a new one with a return shipping label. I was actually impressed. I'll just have to keep blowing it up till I get new one. Thanks again!! I also have the jake and this one doesn't leak even after two years so go for it. They are nice when they work!! Kudos to Ashley from Avian X :happy0064:

Good luck with it. Can't wait to try a jake. I have friends who have had their jakes clobbered by gobblers. I hope to see next year
