    I got the large size ones. PM your address and I can send you a couple.

    I'm going to try them on my breeding flock to see if it will prevent picking of the beards and muffs.

    Here's a picture, I hope. Pin-less peepers are plastic, look like glasses with solid lens, and are attached to the beak/nostrils of a chicken. They partially obstruct vision and are used to stop picking. I have a hen that will not stop picking the feathers of another hen. So.... we'll see what happens when she wears peepers.
