    Are there any LF fantailed breeds? I found this one on feathersite.com called Hand-fantail Ma Lai Bantam. I think I remember seeing something about a fantailed long crower? Does anyone breed these or any fantails??

    Yes, Satsumadori come to mind.

    The tail angle is different, of course. I don't know of any LF with a fantail and that extreme high tail angle. If all you want are fantails regardless of tail angle, then you have several LF breeds that would work. Cubalayas of course , and a few other oriental breeds at times. Hopefully you can tell from the picture how the tail is extremely fanned out in this Cubalaya.

    Hmm.. I was thinking of adding a longtailed breed next year.

    The Bantam Fantail is Henfeathered, so I think thats why the rooster pictured has a high tail, I noticed the hen at the bottom of the Satsumadori page had an upright tail. The rooster's is almost like an umbrella.
