I really had no idea what thread to put this on, so let me know if it needs to change. I got new chicks in February, and one of them was a Silver Laced Polish. I really wanted one (partly because of the funky hairdo), and I had no idea what would come with it... Now, I feel horrible. I never should have gotten one. It feels so cruel that these poor birds should have this giant thing on their heads that makes everything so hard! My poor Polish is absolutely freaked out of me -- like if she gets within five feet of me, it will be the last thing she does. She is always nervous because she can't see anything with her crest in the way, and whenever she tries to peck at something, she misses it by a few inches. So, my whole question is, is there anything I can do to help her with her crest? Like trimming or pulling it back like a ponytail? I know most feathers have blood running through them though... Has anyone else has this problem?
