    I have a 3 1/2 month old polish. The crest seems to be falling to one side and pushing down the eyelid. No feathers are in the eye, just the weight of the crest seems to be causing her to "wipe" her eye on her wing. Any suggestions?

    I used to have to put mine in a rubberband to keep it from their eyes. When it freexes the crestget wet freezes and heavy and when they drink it falls in the water. Rubberband or ziptie.

    We put a rubberband around her crest, and it seems to have worked..Thank-you.
