    PINLESS PEEPERS- I've used the pin-less peepers for a month and today I noticed her beak looking swollen like something was wrong. It was hard to put the peepers on and just as difficult to take out. When I removed the peepers her nostrils started bleeding. I've read great things about using the peepers and now I'm sorry I've used them at all. Her nostrils are swollen and bleeding. Does anyone know how to care for this injury? Thank you for knowledge.

    I had the swelling problem also, an I have simply taken the peepers off and put the pecker in a dog cage on her own. The swelling is going down, and I think I'll put the peepers on again and put her back with the flock soon.
