    Well I recently bought some blinders for some of my roosters that are fighting and I really need them to be housed in the same area. I am wondering if the blinders will inhibit them from breeding with the hens?

    All thought I don't think that "blinder" will affect breeding, I also don't think they are going to be the cure to your roosters fighting.

    Well, I am hopefull. I might have to try something else out but it is worth a shot for sure. I have been told mixed results on this so I hope that it at least makes it harder for them to pick on eachother.

    If your roosters need blinders then you should get better looking hens.

    Blinders are plastic devices put on gamebirds that cover their forward vision, usually red in color, to prevent birds from pecking each other/cannibalism. It is often used with Pheasants and poultry in very small confinements.
