Bumpa Bits are small plastic clips that fit onto a hen's beak to prevent her from pecking her housemates. The hen can still eat and drink normally, but the clip stops the ends of the beak coming together properly to stop her from pulling at skin and feathers. Bumpa Bits should only be used for a maximum of two weeks, as the chicken's beak will start to grow around it if left for longer. This 25mm Bumpa Bit is suitable for medium-sized chickens.
