He's adorable, but I think he's a little bit "special"... He was free, a guy with too many roos wanted to find him a new home because he was "too pretty for the pot". He's a mix of blue laced red wyandotte and yokohama. Anyway, his comb hangs right over his left eye just like Flock of Seagulls and I think it prevents him from seeing and eating properly. His beak is even a little bit crooked, I think because he favors eating on the side he can see on. He is skittish, but warming up to me. But it worried me when I put down a handful of scratch grains when he was hanging out with me on the porch and he RANDOMLY and unsuccessfully began pecking at the concrete, possibly in the hopes that some of the treats would be magnetically attracted to his beak and magically make it in there. I mean, my hens have spot-on precision when putting things in their mouth. This was adorable but kind of worrisome.
So my question is: Can/should I do something about his comb? Part of the reason I got him was to warn the girls about predators, and he certainly can't see well enough to do so. And I'm worried about his quality of life too. I think that's one reason why he's so skittish; he can't see what's coming up to him so he runs from everything. He's also only 7 months old, so that comb is only going to get bigger.
(Rest assured, many crooked and flaccid jokes have been made in the last couple of days.)
