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

Latest Product Reviews For Bumpa Bit - 25mm - Single


They work - Nicole, Kent,

Glad we gave these a try as flockdown led to our first ever feather pecking! Warming the bumpa bits first and then holding the girls afterwards for a while to stop them from trying to take them off did the trick. Once you get the knack it gets easier! Four weeks on and they all have fluffy bottoms again, very pleased.

Does the job - Caroline,

Avian flu lockdown has meant additional confinement for my rescue hens...and a chance for bossy Spiky to victimise her sisters. Spraying their bottoms with gentian violet had some benefits but these clips are better. Thanks to helpful tips on here (wrap her in a towel, warm the clips in hot water, check the grip goes in the nostril...), I've fitted it successfully and bottoms are spared! A cheap, easy solution...and feathers are growing back on bare bottoms! Win-win!

Bought these as extras with the bumpa bit kit - Julie, Aberdeenshire,

They worked really well for me to ween one of my hens out of her feather eating obsession. She is now bit free and back with the flock with no more signs of feather eating. Great tool when used correctly.

Solved a big problem - Holly,

We had a very aggressive chicken who was pecking her flock mates vents and making them bleed - we were having to segregate them every day and I was desperate for a solution. These worked brilliantly- I took the advice to buy about 10 even though I only needed one as several broke on trying to attach but once we had one successfully in place the problem was eliminated. The aggressive behaviour continued for a short while but as she was no longer achieving her goal she seemed to forget about it and learned to live harmoniously alongside the other chickens. 6 weeks on we have removed the bit and there is no problem. Stopped us having to get rid of a problem hen - thank you
