Bits & Bumpers with Automatic Dispensers

• Fastest Application • Economical • Minimizes Pecking • Full growth feathers • Allows for normal flight 


This revolutionary system provides a fast and economical way to minimize feather picking and cannibalism. Invented in Scotland by Brian & Peter Eadie of Polimac, these systems have been used for years in the UK, Europe, and the USA. Not only do these systems minimize the problems associated with pecking, but they do not restrict the birds sight. The results are birds with full feathers and normal flight patterns.

2nd use BumpaBits from 7/8 weeks

REVOLUTIONARY HUMANE ANTI-PICK DEVICE. Applied ‘automatically’. Trough Feeding necessary.

Suitable for Pheasant Poults @ approx 7/8 weeks.

Do not fit to unsuitably mature birds that have not been raised with the B Bit or other Bit. They will tend to fight the Bumpabit.

Many customers have had success with using the B Bit and then switching to the BumpaBit. Although they have to handle the birds twice, the results of great feathers and excellent flight patterns make it worth the extra effort.

Some customers have had luck keeping the young Pheasants in the dark as long as possible and then trying to go straight to the BumpaBit at about 6 or 7 weeks. Its really too early, but some have claimed success with this method.

To use the BitFitter or BumpaFitter –

Push forward only with your thumb on the lever until the Bit or Bumper is extended out of the tube area. Then squeeze your thumb inward to spread the Bit or Bumper. Then insert the Bit or Bumper between the upper and lower beak and line up tips with the holes of the nostril. As you release pressure off your thumb, tilt the Fitter downward and back away from the bird. Good Luck.
