    Yes, but it is a modified form of hen feathering. If you look at the body descriptions and drawings of Campines in the Standard, it does call for tail sickles in the males and not the females. These feathers have to be the same color as in the female, and are longer and curved. Different from full hen feathering in Sebrights.
