    What I thought was a little girl up till about 2 month ago grew combs and wattles and tail feathers.

    I have yet to get a pic of him b/c he is a bugger, but he has white/slate colored feet and long tail feathers.

    So my question what breeds have long tail feathers? This is an old and bad pic.

    That is what I was thinking was an EE mix of sorts. Thank you.

    I'm thinking EE too. I have a rooster here that has an extremely long tail, imo. Just depends what stock it's from I suppose.

    Ohiki, Phoenix, China games, Sumatras, Cubalayas. a long crower i cant spell unless i look at it. few others i cant spell unless i look at it.. and some American games have long tail feathers... herman pinion yellow legged hatch for example since they had Chinese gamefowl crossed into them. way back. OEGs (and bantams) can get big/fair long tail feathers. but no more then you see on the typical show bird which isn't as long as the breeds posted above.
