I have a hen that recently realized that she can scalp the feathers out of the crest on my three polish hens and if you move away the feathers on the polish’s head you han see bald spots and blood. The polish cannot see and I have tried a pony tail on the polish but they just get picked on more. I can hear and see the pain in the polish and I was thinking of getting CHICKEN BLINDERS for the mean hen? Have y’all used chicken blinders and do the really work?

Ive never tried blinders but when I had problems with different breeds I just separate them or remove to problem chicken if possible.

When I had silkies I kept them in a small chicken tractor away from the others since they had a hard time seeing thru their head fluff. I also would give them a haircut to help them see, idk if your able to snip a few feathers outta the polishes eyesight but if cutting feathers doesnt bother you then itd help them see better! Best of luck.

I've never used them, but many others have. Use the search function at the top of the page and search for "pinless peepers" and you will find many threads where they are discussed, that may help you in deciding. I do know that some have said they caused irritation. I think trimming the feathers on the polish so they can see better would be helpful.

Honestly I cut my polish hair because I have tried everything for them as well. So I you cut the head feathers every few weeks they will be able to run and thank you for it. The first time I cut my polish she was like amazed it was like a whole new world lol. It was so funny
And they can see and get away if need be. Good luck
