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

Good product but beware! - Susana,

You need to buy 10 at least and have the right pliers otherwise you wont be able to fit them Only possible to have fitted with 2 people Once you fit it remember the middle of the beak has to have the middle of the bumpa bit in it. Google images helped me! Our hen had bad habit of eating feathers peking in order ti do so and after a month we took it off and she seems fine.


Not good - Jen,

I have bought bits from Omlet before and they were fab, however, every bit from the latest batch snapped when putting them on my hens. Hardly any pressure applied and they snapped straight away. Maybe it was a faulty batch. Got in touch with Omlet and they refunded me straight way and said they will investigate which is good service.

Omlet Says: Thank you for your review and for pointing out that there was a problem. Indeed it was a faulty batch and it has been duly reported to our supplier. The problem is now fixed: the new stock has been quality checked. Thanks again for your feedback, The Omlet team.


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.
