    I dont' know what's going on with my Polish. Her crown seems to have little white specks along the shafts, but when i inspected the rest of her feathers, they are fine. Her crown doesn't seem to be coming in very even, but I don't know if any of the other girls are picking on her. They don't seem to be from what I actually see, but I don't watch them 24/7 if you know what I mean. She's about 6 weeks old.

    could this be mites? I don't know what mites on chickens look like.

    She won't be still long enough for me to get a close up pic of her crown. I will try later... but she's not the friendliest of my chickens.
