    For anyone who has dwelt with or is dealing with a feather picker or just a plain mean chicken, give the pinless peepers a shot. I was sceptical at first also, but after trying mulitple ideas from fellow BYCer's here I was left with only 2 options, the pot or the peepers. I have a "white devil" Delaware who insisted on biting the combs of her sisters so I purchased these 2 weeks ago, put them on her after a week of separation did not work and she has had them on for 8 days now and WOW what a difference they have made.

    She has not bitten anyone since and all combs are healed. She has been knocked down a few notches in the pecking order also and has settled in nicely. I plan on keeping them on her until spring and see what happens, but I give the pinless peepers a 10 out of 10 and would recommend them highly.

    They worked for me, too, with a "hopeless" feather picker. I kept them on her for an entire summer, then took them off. It was too soon - she went right back to her evil ways.

    I put them back on her, leaving them on for an entire year. I recently took them off, and behold! She was cured! It's been several months now, and she hasn't picked a single feather.

    I had to google pinless peepers to see what you all were talking about. Now I'll know what to get if I ever have feather picker problem.

    Quote:I know what you mean, I'll try and upload a photo of it on later today. I think these work great even if they are just plain mean or you get a bully hen, it has really calmed her down.
