Generally: In contrast to the canaries with a equal ground colour, is in mosaic canaries a chalky white plumage outside the specified colour zones (= mosaic areas) required. The specified colour zones should be as intense as possible and only be confined to the prescribed areas of head, wing butts, rump and chest. Mosaic Canary Female (Type I or T I) 1. The head markings are composed of a small clear eyeline of a good ground colour (lipochrome red or yellow) and located behind the eye. 2. The specified areas of the the wing butts are well marked and also clearly defined. The ground colour (lipochrome red or yellow) is good coloured and not extend into the wing feathers. 3. The ground colour (lipochrome red or yellow) of the rump is intense and also well defined.  4. The chest should contain a small ground coloured (lipochrome red or yellow) area but not extend into the throat, flanks or abdomen. In mosaic canaries of the Type I (T I=females) are all relevant colour zones small, from a good contrasting and not too pronounced. In lipochrome canaries are the colour of the plumage outside of the specified areas chalky white, while in melanin canaries the colouration of the plumage is varied, depending on the existing melanin.

WHAT ARE THE CHARACTERISTICS

OF MOSAIC CANARIES?

Mosaic Canary Male (Type II or T II) 1. The facial mask is well confined to the specified area and the ground colour (lipochrome red or yellow) is intense. The eyes are located within of the mask, comparable to the goldfinch. The whole mask is closed (not interrupted). 2. The specified areas of the wing butts are well marked and also clearly defined. The ground colour (lipochrome red or yellow is intense coloured and the secondary flight feathers are white as possible. 3.

A good coloured triangular on the chest area is required, but well separate from the mask and flanks. The lower abdomen must be white. 5. On the back: A hint of lipochrome colouration would be accepted. In mosaic canaries of the Type II (T II=males) are also all relevant colour zones from a good contrasting. In lipochrome canaries are the colour of the plumage outside of the specified areas chalky white, similar to Type I (T I), while in melanin canaries the colouration of the plumage is varied, depending on the existing melanin. Only on the back are faint traces of the ground colour (lipochrom red or yellow) allowed.
