BREEDING FOR THE LONGTAILS

body form


Back to Breeding For The Longtails Page One



 

 

The next examples are of the older standard for form, a body shape much influenced by the fact that the Onagadori and Phoenix were considered to be the same breed. The Onagadori has a falling back line and a "country chicken" body form with as long as possible veil of feathers. The feathers are also usually soft and limp. These birds usually are much feather richer than the modern form birds.
