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.
