I was shocked to see what happened to my Golden Laced Polish in our first soaking rain yesterday! Her head went completly limp and she had a bald spot showing on her head! Now, after the sun came out, she has been pecking in the mud and her head feathers are still limp and now they are muddy. What a mess!! You think it is hard for them to see with all those feathers, what about when they go limp? Then get MUDDY! She can't preen up there! How will she ever get back her nice hair do??? I wish I had a picture....it was so ugly... and sad looking. Future Polish crested owners, beware if you live in rainy climates!
