I have golden sexlink pullets and a few easter eggers. 3 month old. I have always had problems with golden sexlinks pecking and killing each other, no matter what. room, protein, boredom, you name it ive basically tried it. I was told to debeak them, by barely getting into the quick cauterizing , but i just couldn't do it to those week old chicks. Anyway, I want to try some peepers. I think i like the pinless type. So are pinless just as good as the ones with pens? i don't really like the idea of the pin going through there nose. Will the peeper clip thing kind of cut in to the nose? How long do they stay on? Do they work well? Are the economy ones just as good? If someone could answer my question my tomorrow morning that would be great. I am going to get some off ebay possibly and try< so i would like to knop before i order. Thanks BYC!!!!! ps. for protein, would elk hamburger be okay? The feed is vegitarian, and mice don't dare to go in the coop....thanks again!
