Omlet US Bumpa Bits

General Information

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.

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.

Where do you find these? Is there a distributor in Canada or the United States? I know they are available in the UK but I cannot find a distributor that will ship to Canada.
 
Spade and Feather in Canada - will also ship to the US. Unfortunately, I had to order in such bulk, that I am going to have too many and going to have to list some on ebay in the US just to get rid of the excess, as I have less than ten chickens. So far, I can't find the pliers needed to put them on available in the US, so people in the US who need the pliers have to order from Spade and Feather in Canada.
