    I have a 17 week old Swedish Flowen Hen (possibly cockerel) that has a beautiful crest. She/he is being raised with 4 other babies of all varieties. They all eat treats out of my hands...no problems. This bird has a problem finding the treat...he 'swings and misses' the treat everytime! Does anyone have any experience with this? Do you think he is having trouble seeing becasue of the crest? He's also the one most likely to be left behind..oblivious to what's going on around him. Any ideas?
