I don't think she's completely blind, and I don't think her crest has much to do with it. She doesn't lay much, and she's 95% infertile, so considering that she's a super unusual color, I'll bet inbreeding plays a factor. I trimmed her crest after I was done showing her in early summer. She never had any competition, so her entry fee was wasted anyway, and I had noticed that she tends to tilt her head way back. The trimming didn't help, and I noticed the same behaviors. Bananas are like chicken crack at my house, and there's no other reason that she should miss her target so often. I also find her in the middle of the yard by herself, or she's the only one only one still in the pen an hour after I open the door. Luckily, all the new and homeless chicks adopt her as their own, so she's never lonely! Click on the picture to watch the video.
