    Ok, this is probably a silly question but I want to know. I have a white polish chick that is being raised by a broody. It's 3 weeks old and it has dirty "hair." [​IMG]

    I know, right? It isn't tame like my other babies so I'm wondering, do I need to catch the little darling and do something or just leave it be? I mean it's been so that it looks like it's crest is coming in grey or black it looks so bad. The rest of it's body isn't exactly pristine white but it's little topknot looks so dirty I think it's trying to grow dreads or something.
