I know it may be a dumb question... This is the second time I've cut the poof on my two Polish gals so they could see better. The first time, I trimmed and had to paint their heads with blue food coloring to cover their pink scalps from peeking through the sparse white feathers so they would be left alone. This was very successful. Their scarce poofs have turned into HUGE, PUFFY, cotton-ball like hats - just shy of the size of a baseball. When cutting today, I hit some pin feathers that bleed. OW! I'm concerned. Is there any feeling in those feathers? I've washed their heads so there is no red, dried them, painted them blue again and they seems very happy and are running all over to explore and seem to be really checking out the place like it's new... In fact it's the first time I've seen them really engage in some chest bumping. Are we ok?
