    I have a 13 week old polish, when I went up my polish was running up and down the wire of at the side I was at and flying at it as if it wasn't there. When I went in she flue at me and just sat on my shoulder. When I took her off she did the same thing. when I left she started flying at me again through the wire. is there any reason why she is doing this ?

    Can she see? My polish was acting oddly, not nesting with her gang. Turns out her crest had grown right down around her eyes amd she couldn't see a thing. On the advice of someone here we trimmed them this evening and she's like a new bird.

    there have been several time's where I thought she couldn't but she seems to be able to do everything the rest of my flock can and I can just see her eyes from a stood position so she can see me. she often tilts her head as well to see better.
