    I just love him! He has been so wonderful and I toyed with selling him but have decided to get some girls for him and breed him [​IMG] Right now he is with his girl friend Shelby (Polish) and they have been raised together and went out to the big coop together and got picked on together. Now they get a coop to their self (were building it now). I got him from a breeder in GA (A friend of mine) who's G Phoenix has won many shows. He is beautiful! His tail is amazingly long already. He is still very young he will be a year this next summer. He's about 6-7 months old now.

    He's pretty! Once you get him into a bigger cage I'm sure his tail will get even longer!.

    If you want to keep his tail long, build a coop with perches and keep the food and water up so they can be reached from the perch.
    This will keep them up off the ground for the majority of the time.
    Mine still get down and dust bath but stay perched a good bit.
    I have 2 pair in indoor coops and another male I plan to bring in when my other female is old enough.

    Wow, he's handsome. He has great coloring, and it looks like his comb is really nice. How is his temperament?

    When his tail grows out, it will look similar to this:
