    Can some of the standard experts here help me compare and contrast the differences between the type and tail angles, according to the standard for Large fowl Barred Rocks and Dominiques. Or post pics or links to pics of an example of SQ Dominiques. I've heard some say that their tails are supposed the be at a 45 degree angle like BRs and then I've also heard that they should be arched like American Gamefowl.

    So basicly I would like some pics and/or info of what a Dom should look like according to the SOP.

    The tail angle for Dominiques, per the ASOP, should be 45 degrees just as I told you when you PMed me with this question. This applies to both males & females.
    Plymouth Rocks should not have a 45 degree tail angle. The males should be 30 degrees & the females 20 degrees.
