    Tail feathers may take a molt, or you could pluck them out so that they will regrow.

    He looks brown red to me--note the absence of the wing triangle.

    Black Breasted Red is a hobby name for the colour/pattern of a male bird. It is derived from what could be seen when looking down into a cockfighting pit. Red back,black breast. Duckwing, Brown,Wheaten and Birchen males are all described as BBR. All except Birchen have cinnamon brown wing triangles.
    Birchen bred birds have a crow-wing, a black wing triangle, and are known as Brown Reds.
    Whilst all the males look similar the hens all have completely different plumages. The hen for this cock should be basically black with a red in the neck hackle. and a little red on the breast.
