    If you have never used "Pinless Peepers, and you have a problem with the girls pecking each other, shame on you. When I put these on my girls beaks, it only takes them a moment to adjust and then they act and eat normally, but they quit pecking.

    So I decided, why not have some fun with it, So I glued googly eye on the side we peeps see. My pullets still look at the same blue blinder and we get chicks with BIG eyes.

    Just got home from a long, tiresome, somewhat stressful night at work- this is EXACTLY what I needed to put a smile on my face [​IMG]

    Luckily I have never had any problems, well major problems, with pecking. However I have a friend who currently has blinders on his chickens......thanks to you, my friend will soon come home and find all of his chickens will have the big eyes....thats great

    Quote:They already have what looks like a big nose. Now I'm thinking about big curly false eyelashes, but I'm afraid the others might think it's a catapillar and I sure don't want to start any new pecking.
