Pros: Doesn't block vision

Cons: Expensive

Expensive, but effective. Like peepers, birds tend to work them off; unlike peepers there is no risk of permanent vision problems. I suggest feeding crumbles or small pellets in a wider opening feeder so biddy can reach in and shovel feed out as the bit extends a bit past the tip of the beak.

Omlet US Bumpa Bits
Description:

This Scottish invention has been widely used in the UK since the ban on peepers in the UK. It does not obstruct the chickens view, but prevents it from getting a good grip on another bird when pecking, and blocks the sharp tip of the beak from contact with other birds. The birds will generally remove them in a couple of weeks, which has also been my experience with peepers. I suggest feeding crumbles or smaller pellets in wider opening feeders when these are used. I think the biddies prefer them to peepers, which can cause permanent vision problems.
