    I have a polish pullet that's looking like that right now. What happened was when everyone was feathering in the saw the blood/pin feathers at the top of her head and began pulling them out. It sucks because she has the most perfect crest of all my polish, until she turns around. She's a white crested blue so the blood really shows through on her pins on her head. I put a little Blue Kote on her bald spot to change the color and everyone leaves her alone now. Best of luck [​IMG]
