What is the deal with chicken glasses?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Today I found the strangest thing...does anyone really use chicken glasses to keep them from pecking each other? I found this thing that uses a little stick with a hook to secure these plastic discs through the nostrils. They must act like blinders but prevent them from seeing directly in front but allow them to see to the side? I have to wonder, is it painful? Can the chicken still eat and breathe ok???

I've heard of and seen them, but I've never used them myself.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

There must be some other way to keep chickens from pecking!?!
If I see this happening, is there anything else I can do besides separating the chickens?
