    I have a red star/bantam and she seems to have long tail feathers (no red comb and no wattles). I've read that's supposedly roo-ish? but i have a black star/bantam (https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=506105) the same age (5 weeks) and he has a red comb and he is developing wattles. But he has a short stubby tail. Opinions?
