Why do you want to paint the feeder? OK-but only if the paint is completely non-toxic to hummers, is more than two feet from any opening that is used to pour the food in and the hummers touch. That is, no paint at or near the perch, feeder tube and body, inside and out, and any other areas of the feeder.

I belabor answering your question because when you clean the feeder at least every four days, there is the definite probability of getting even a tiny little bit of dried paint residue into the hummer food. And, even a tiny little bit hurts a tiny little bird, very much so!
