    Looks like a game unless it's from a hatchery. Phoenix should have a lower tail carriage, I think it's at least level with the back if not lower.

    Quote:Phoenixes most certainly do come in black breasted red, but I still say it is not a phoenix but a game.

    Their tails grow for years, it has a pretty good-sized tail for being so young.
