Pinless Peepers for bantams?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello all, I have a small bantam and the regular pinless peepers will not fit his nostrils, I'm afraid it is going to hurt him since I can't get the pins inside the nostrils opening. Where do you get pinless peepers small enough to fit? I will post a pic later when I am able to. Thank you! The little roo is lonely since he's been separated so I'm hoping for a solution soon.

Why has he been separated? Most aggression issues comes from not enough room, or from young hormonal birds.

The little roo likely does need more room, but I am in the process still of building the permanent coop, so they are temporarily in a mobile tractor. I had to remove him because the distractions from picking on the beard of one of the two girls did not work in the long run and he started picking on their combs. He is a sweet rooster, so I'd like to give him a chance with the peepers to see if that will work.

You could just pen him next to the others, he can still interact with them through the wire. I haven't used peepers so I can't help you with that. Sorry.

He is a Belgian d'Anvers, so are the two girls he is picking on. I also have two bantam wyandotte chicks that are two weeks old (being raised separately), I'm wondering how we will react if one of those is a roo when they are put together in a month or so.
