           Standard Description of the Border Fancy Canary Body Well-filled and nicely rounded running in a smooth downward curve from the gentle, smooth rise over the shoulders to the point of the tail. The chest also nicely rounded, but not heavy. The line of curve to the root of the tail always being downwards. Viewed from above and behind the body should be symmetrically pear-shaped. Colour Rich, soft and pure, as leve in tint as possible throughout, but extreme depth and hardness such as colour feeding gives are debarred. Any exhibit showing the effects of colour feeding will be disqualified. Position and Carriage Semi-erect, standing at an angle of 60º. Gay and jaunty with full poise of the head. Head Well rounded and neat when viewed from any angle, beak fine, eyes clear and positioned to rest on an imaginary line drawn as an extension to the line between the upper and lower mandible of the beak, very slightly forward of a central point of the head. Neck In keeping with the head and flowing smoothly into the body lines and of sufficient length to give a free, jaunty look to the head carriage. Wings Compact and carried close to the body, covering the back, with primary and secondary flight feathers meeting at the tips. Outter flight tips to meet at the root of the tail. Primaries and secondaries to be pointed. Plumage Close, firm and fine in quality, presenting a smooth, silken glossy appearance, free from browiness, frill or roughness. Health and condition Condition and cleanliness shall have due weight. Legs and feet Of medium length and showing just a little thigh, the legs should be fine yet in harmony with the size of the bird and allowing in to adopt a gay, jaunty stance. Feet in keeping with legs, both to be clean and without blemish. Tail Close packed and narrow, being nicely rounded and well filled in at the root. Size The ideal length from top of the head to tip of the tail is 14.5 cm. Length should be in proportion and balance with other features of the bird. .
SHOW CAGE: Border type show cage with 2 round perches 14 mm in diameter, 6 wires apart.
