I have found a gene undescribed before. It is present in my Cream Legbars. In my other birds like leghorns or others, only the outermost tail feather (very rarely 2 outermost) is pointed, while the rest is not(look like in adults).

In my Cream Legbars(which are in fact silver) all the feathers from the second set of chick tail feathers are pointed.

Have anybody else encountered such thing? I'm curious how common it may be.
