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.

Fitting is much easier when using a pair of Circlip Pliers, also available to buy from us.

Please note that the colour of the bumpa bits may vary

amazingly effective - Nicky ,

We got 3 new POL hens a month ago, and the smallest one was viciously attacked by the others, pulling the feathers out from her neck, drawing blood and removing the skin on the scalp. Brutal, we didn't think she would survive. We tried the bumpa bits as a last resort, when anti-pecking spray had failed, and we were far from convinced that a little bit of plastic would work. We separated them initially, and then put on the bumpa bits onto the two bigger hens - definitely a 2 man job, but easier with the bits warmed up (to make them more flexible). We had the circlip pliers but found them trickier to use than fingers. Went through several, as even when they were successfully on, our hens could flick them off with their feet, but eventualy they stayed on! After 24 hours we re-united the birds in the same pen, and while there was a little chasing about, no pecking at all. Within a few days they were behaving normally, and after two weeks we removed the bits (needed 2 people and the circlip pliers to do that, much too fiddly for fingers!) and there has been no further trouble. Astonishingly, our badly wounded bird has survived, and they all seem very comfortable with each other. Given the brutality of the pecking at the start I was really surprised that this would work, but really pleased, thank you omlet.


Fiddly bits - Amani ,

The first Bit I put on my hen was too tight on the nostrils and was obviously hurting the hen, I took it off after 5 mins. I tried another Bit, after trying to stretch it wider, but it was also so tight I couldn't get it on without causing distress. The third one I tried to stretch apart more - although it's difficult because they are so rigid, this one went on the beak very easily and was not hurting the hen at all. I think they must have been slightly different sizes. Having fitted the bumpa bit 2weeks ago, hen is happily carrying on and eating well, and most importantly her pecking "victim" is healing well and no longer under attack. Good result eventually.


Bumpa Bit - Valerie ,

These worked very well initially but after a month the chickens started pecking feathers again and we had to replace the bits as they were obviously no longer working. Could see the thin pieces across the middle were worn through. Have other people found this to be so?


Best product for feather biting/eating - Jez ,

Slightly tricky to put on and I would definitely recommend the pliers...but these are bump bits are a great way to break bad habits with your hens!


Dubious at first but worked a treat - Polly ,

Had tried everything to prevent bullying of my smallest hen following the death of my eldest hen and a change in the pecking order. Was on the verge of rehoming the bully hen :-( until oh found these... Quite tricky to fit but once in place hen happy, can eat, drink and breathe completely normally. After a week, the 2 opposing hens were eating together and sharing a perch at night. Brilliant product and does not cause any harm to the hen other than the slight faff with getting it in place.
