Pip with her bumpa bit.

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

A necessary evil. - Janet, Pembrokeshire,

Absolute last resort to sort out a feather pecking problem. We had our own pliers, and I can't imagine how I'd have have got it on without. As it was the first attempt broke the clip. So buy more than you think you need. The clip is very hard and brittle plastic. Necessarily so or the chicken would be able to get it off in no time. Warm the clip first in a cup of hot water and the job is a lot easier. It's a tricky job that needs two people, but not as bad as I feared.

Bumpa Bit Works! - Fiona,

Bumpa bit has worked well. We had a problem with a hen eating eggs. After fitting the Bumpa bit she has now got out of the habit which has saved her life basically as she was a real nuisance.

Does exactly what it said it would - Tony,

The clip are easy to it after a little practice, make sure you tuck the chicken under your arm and hold it tight. You will need to hold the neck of the bird, but not too tight, so as to fit the clip. The fitting of the clips can be done by one person with a little confidence. Time will tell I'd the feather pecking will stop.

They Work! - Carole, Worcestershire,

Rather worrying to use for the first time but having read all hints given on line nowhere near as bad as thought it would be - Martha stopped trying to get the bit out by the next day and ate happily with it in - would recommend to anyone have pecking problems.

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.
