Hi All,

New Brahma breeder here and looking for some advice on my Cockreel.
He's still young, 5mo, but as his feathering is starting to come in I've noticed that he is holding his tail ever so slightly to the left. (See pictures). It is slight but far more noticeable in the flesh.

Just wanted to know if he should be out of my breeding program or should I hold onto him longer if it's likely to correct / just how their feathers come in when young.
Is the straight tail as important in the roosters as the hens? Due to the feathering how straight does it need to be? All my hens have good straight tails.
I don't want to stuff up my breeding program early so looking for advice however Brahma roosters are hard to come by in my area and he's the only one I have at this stage.

Thank you for your assistance.

Wry tail { tail tilted to the lift or right} is genetic deformity . if you breed him he will pass this trait to his progeny .not to all of them ,
