This question is for everyone.

Why do all the Phoenix chickens look so similar to a leghorn but with the fancy tail?

Asking cause I have my suspicion.
Pretty sure they came from the samr time pwriod and close countries (I think Italy for the Leghorn and I know Europe for pheonixes [not sure which exact country off the top of my head]

The Leghorn back should be rather long. That said, the “tail swoop” should start in the center of the back (achieved by cushions/tail coverts) so the back appears to be shorter and more concave. The main and maybe only type difference I can find between Leghorns and Anconas is that Leghorn sweep begins in the middle of the back and the Ancona tail begins at the end.
