    My poor Ameraucana is still getting bullied, and attacked anytime they are not free ranging, so I have decided to try the pinless peepers. Should I put them on all the girls or just the 5 naughty ones? Also would the peepers inhibit them from using the waterer nipples?

    Lots of people use peepers, and lots use nipples -- surely some people use both, and the chickens figure it out. You could always put a small bowl of water out just in case.

    I'd just put the peepers on the bad girls. As for the nipples, they'll probably be fine but since I don't know that for sure, the water bowl sounds like a great idea unless you can just watch them for a while and see.
