    That's very a beautiful bird.

    How do they prevent damage to those amazing tail feathers? Do they use a Roo Do Rag? [​IMG]

    wow those feathers are awsome.. is that normal for a that breed to have such long feathers.. or is that just one of the best of the best ...?? And normal people (who dont spend millions on birds) just get a few feet of feathers??

    I believe TommyVT in San Diego, CA raises these. I've asked the same thing... how do they keep their tails so nice? Reminds me of a Dr. Seuss story where they were carrying the feathers for a birds so they wouldn't drag on the ground (or something like that). They'd never survive up here... too much mud in the summer. [​IMG]

    Gorgeous birds, though.

    People, according to the chicken book that is on my lap, "...that of the Onagadori's record length of forty feet!"
