    I wouldn't want to impede my chicken's vision and have something permanently stuck in their nostrils....

    I seen these on several birds at the last swap meet I went too. Most were on pheasants. I didn't like the look of them either.

    They are commonly used with pheasants and gamebirds.

    I don't know much about chickens. So if they can't see the other bird they won't peck at them? What about running into things and not seeing a preditor? Horse blinders are one thing but they can still see forward. I guess I don't know much about chickens.

    I'm guessing these are used for birds that are raised in pens their whole lives...... not free-ranged birds.

    One of the younger members of this site posted photos of their growing hens, in their coop, with these on.

    I'd never seen them before.
