Can I trim the feathers from my chicken’s eyes?

Yes, if you have a pom-pom or crested breed such as Padovana, Silkie or Polish and you feel her vision is impaired by her frontal pom-pom feathers then you can trim these. Use sharp scissors and be careful, the feathers here do not have deep blood follicles so it is unlikely you will cause bleeding.
