    Does anyone have a close up shot of a hen wearing a pinless peeper?

    Or better yet, a YouTube video of them putting one on their hen?

    I'm pretty sure I was trying to put it on upside down and couldn't get it on her.

    A close up shot of the hen wearing one would really help me.

    Quote:Oh, yes. VERY helpful. I'm quite certain I was trying to put this on upside down.

    Any other advice for a first time Peeper Installer? I think I'll wait till tonight when she's sleeping. She a Jersey Giant and a big feisty girl.

    I know to soak the peeper in hot water to make it pliable. Where I got hung up before was it seemed to be hurting the hen putting it in her nostrils. But maybe that's because I was doing it upside down.

    Is the key to go fast and snap it in place? Are you sure I won't hurt the bird by doing that?
