I should probably mention that my roos are either polish or silkies. The silkies have always been nice to me. The polish... well.. the silver laced polish is scared of me. If I walk near him, he huddles near the fence and I just gently pick him up. It's the other polish that has been giving me problems. Since his feathers were getting so long in the front, I taped them up for a couple of days with some painters tape so he could see better. He was a lot less skiddish. Yesterday, I finally took the tape off and just lopped off his top feathers to a reasonably length. He seems happier and can see better.
