    I just got my "Pinless Peepers" and tried to get my grown son to help me put them on my 7 week old chicks. I did my best to hold them still enough, but a point was reached where I was afraid I would hurt my hens. Their neck and head seems so fragile and after loosing one to ijury already, I am reluctant to hold them too tight.

    Any suggestions?
