    One of the biggest problems I have with these is the tail is usually a piece of junk... so I am looking of a tail..... If you have a tail of decent shape and would like to sell it or donate it (LOL) I would like to buy it.. Looking for a tail...

    "just for men" works great too just experiment on an extra feather to adjust the amount of time you leave dye on before rinsing
