Peepers and predators??

Discussion in 'Predators and Pests' started by Tikkijane, Jan 9, 2012.

  1. I'm wondering- do the pinless peepers affect the ability to escape predators? I was asked this question, and honestly, have no idea.....

    ??????????

    Thanks,
    Tikki

    Yes. If you free-range peepers are not recommended because it impedes birds' vision and narrows their visual field.

    Good luck.
     
  3. I don't know that they are totally free ranging since they have a run. I think their biggest concern was hawks..... Thanks! :)
