I've noticed that different breeds have different styles of tails, for example.
My Barnevelders have squared off tails, which seems typical of the breed, as do Dutch bantams and leghorns, some have rounded tails (Rosecombs) and most seem to have peaked tails like Plymouth Rocks or Orpingtons. Are there names for different tails?
 
The SOP only gives descriptions, but not names. Example: Main tail-feathers broad and well spread, carried at an angle of about 40 degrees above horizontal. Coverts-broad, abundant, flowing well up the tail.
