    So I'll be getting a few Phoenix's this coming month. [​IMG]
    I'm super excited for them, and want them to do their best in show.
    So I was wondering if anyone had any helpful tips on getting their tail as long as can be?
    I've raised quite a few chicks before, so I don't really need tips on raising chicks. Just on making their tail feathers grow long.

    Any feedback is welcome. [​IMG]

    Give them plenty of room to grow. Housing them separately is best. Make sure they can't tangle feathers on anything and the roost placement doesn't cause their tail feathers to rub against the coop walls. Lots of bedding, to keep them out of mud is also helpful.

    Housing them seperately from the rest of my flock, or each of them by themselves?
    Because I plan on keeping them seperate from my flock, but I also plan on keeping them all together because I couldn't bare to have a chicken without a buddy. [​IMG]
