    I have a serama rooster with a 10-25 degree angled tail. He does hold it straight sometimes but it does tend to angle more than not. Would this been considered wry tail? I have another rooster from a different breeder that has it but his tail stays at a 90 degree angle all the time.

    Wry tail is where the tail is held crooked to the side. It is thought to be hereditary.
