    Not sure if this is the right place for this question but I don't think a beauty emergency is appropriate for the emergencies section.

    My poor little polish can't see a thing. The bangs from her crest have grown right down over her eyes and she can pretty much only see what's immediately in front of and below her. As a result, she's roosting alone because she can't get up to where the others are.

    What can I do to help her?

    Thanks!
    Tina

    I just trimmed my 4 Polish girls, just a little around eyes. One of them immediately ran after a bug ... finally. She never did that before.
    I have been wondering if when there are freezes do people cut back their 'hats'?
    Most of the time when drinking their hats are soaked. Surely they will freeze up in the ice cold?

    Thanks for the tip. We trimmed her bangs this evening and she was like a new bird - hopped right up to the rafters with her buddies!
