See? My pair of polish are now 3 months old. Both have nice looking crests. We've already given the little pullet two "haircuts" because she was obviously not seeing well - running into things, in circles, etc. However, every time I pick up the polish cockerel to give him a trim, I look him in the face and his eyes are clearly visible. His poof is going out in every direction. I end up not trimming his because I don't want to ruin his looks if I don't have to for the sake of safety. He doesn't run into things like the pullet does. With the roo's crest going up and out does it still become necessary to trim or does the overall shape keep it out of his eyes? These two free range with the rest of the flock(s), but they do stick close to their "sister", a turken who is very alert.
