    Do they stick their tails up like the toms when everyone is getting all riled up? Also, do their heads turn colors as well?

    I can't say for certain that their head changes colors but they will stick their tails up and trill when aggitated.

    Their wattles and under side of the head will get red but not the blues and whites you see in toms. They can pull their tails up but cannot make a perfect fan like the toms
