Chickens Can Put Their Shades On Too

Did you know National Band & Tag used to manufacture rose-colored Chicken Glasses to help stop chickens from pecking at each other? The sight of blood intensified the pecking instinct in chickens, so the rose-colored lenses made the red disappear, thus reducing cannibalism. The glasses we invented by National Band & Tag’s founder, Joseph Haas in 1939. These glasses for chickens are now considered to be a collectors’ item.

Barry Weiss from the hit show Storage Wars found a few pairs of our Chicken Glasses in a storage unit and took them to a friend to see how they worked.

Have you ever seen a pair of these chicken glasses? We would love to hear your stories/experiences with this historic product!
