Prise open the Bumpa Bit quickly, easily and with one hand, leaving your other hand free for hen handling. These pliers come with two 180 degree heads, a 45-degree head and a 90-degree head.
Perfect to stop the bully in your coop
So far so good. The chickens appear to have got used to them so we'll see how it goes after two weeks. Easy to apply with the circlip pliers. It would possibly be good if they came in a bright colour. I don't know how that would affect chickens behaviour. With a bright colour it would be easier to check that the bumpa bits haven't been removed. And easier to find when a clever chook manages to remove it!
Ordered the bumpa bits as our free range, well fed hens looked dreadful - like a bad moult but realised one hen was in pristine condition. Watched her for awhile and caught her in the act of pecking and eating the other hen’s feathers . Easily fitted and problem sorted. Feathers are starting to grow back. Happy hens again. 👍
