Hello all. So last year i found my one and only JG dead beside the A/C unit from unknown causes and she was only maybe 4-5 months old. Well fast forward to about a month and a half ago and i found a local breeder who i purchased two chicks from. Both chicks have significantly larger tails than the bird i had last year and one chicks tail is so large it is to the point of looking like a Japanese Bantam tail(slightly dramatic but still). Is this normal? Would pictures help? Is this a good trait? Bad trait? Any help here?
A tail that long would not be to the standard for the breed.
