    Would these be a disqualification for showing? Cuz the guy I got him from said he was Show Quality, but his fifth toes look really weird. They look swollenish instead of the normal looking toes. His nails are also SUPER long.

    Well, you can always give his nails a trim (dog nail clippers). Long feathers coming from the head are called 'streamers' or 'streamer feathers'. Normal for males. Can't give a reply as to the toe...
