Color of Male and Female by Variety
COMB: Rose - square front, tapering to where the spike begins, sitting firmly and evenly on the head. The top should be evenly covered with fine points, and free from hollows. The spike should be round from the base to the tip (not a blade!), long, tapering to a fine point, and tilted slightly upward.
BEAK: Short, strong, and nicely curved.
FACE: Fine in texture--free from wrinkles, folds, or bristles.
EYES: Bold, conspicuous, large in diameter.
WATTLES: Firm, broad, fine in texture, well rounded, and free from wrinkles or folds.
EAR LOBES: Prominent, flat, and absolutely round with rounded edges. Smooth, of uniform texture all over, and fitting closely to the head. Large in comparison to the size of the bird.
HEAD: Medium sized, and carried well back in a proud manner.
NECK: Well arched, smaller toward the head and "bull-necked" at the base.
HACKLE: Falling gracefully and plentifully over the shoulders, well down over the back.
BACK: Moderately short and broad from shoulders to tail, giving a somewhat concave appearance. There should be no break where the back joins the tail.
SADDLE: Feathers abundant and long. Lower saddle should fill the space between the stern and the wing tips.
TAIL: Main tail--carried well back at angle of 40 degrees above the horizontal, well expanded but not extending beyond the sickles. Broad feathers. Sickles--broad, long, and very well curved. Lesser sickles--broad, abundant, and well curved. Coverts--abundant and nicely curved.
WINGS: Long, carried well back, with the points concealing the back half of the thighs, but not the hocks.
BREAST: Full, round, and carried well up and forward. Should extend farther forward than a vertical line drawn down through from the point of the beak.
BODY & STERN: Body--short but with good depth and width. Stern--flat, broad, and thick. Fluff short and abundant.
LEGS & TOES: Legs--short, well set apart, and parallel to each other. In profile they should be in the center of the body, below the back. Lower thighs--short, stout at top, and tapering to the hocks. Shanks--rather short, round, smooth, scales neatly overlapping. Spurs--small, fine, set low. Toes--four, straight, well and evenly scaled.
APPEARANCE: Proud, alert, graceful, the back showing one continuous sweeping curve from neck to tail.
*to avoid redundancy, body parts that should be the same as those on the male will not be re-written*
NECK: Medium length, tapering, and nicely arched.
HACKLE: Abundant, and falling gracefully over the shoulders and back.
CUSHION: Full, feathers abundant.
TAIL: Carried well back, full, well expanded, broad feathers, and held at an angle of 35 degrees above the horizontal. Main tail--feathers broad, long. Top two tail feathers somewhat concaved. Coverts--broad, very long, flowing well up the tail.
