           Standard Description of the Lizard Canary Spangels The series of small black spots which form the most essential characteristic of the Lizard. Each spangle should be clear and distinct and as black as possible. The spangle should extend from the edge of the cap i perfectly straight lines to the wing coverts, each successive spangle being progressively larger than the one nearer the neck. Feather-quality Should be fine and soft and should fit to the body closely and tightly with no suggestion of coarseness or looseness. Breast (Rowings) The rowings are the markings on the breast and flanks. They should be clear and distinct from one another and lineable. Ground Colour The ground colour must show depth and evenness, distinct from the characteristic pattern of the markings. Rich yellow for Gold and warm buff for Silver, white for Blue. Wings and Tail The wing feathers are compact and held closely to the body. Their tips meet in a straight line down the center of the back. They are so dark as to appear almost black. The tail is narrow, straight and neat, with feathers of the same colour as the wing feathers. Cap The head is fairly large, round and full on the top. The cap extends from the base of the upper mandible to the base of the skull and is oval in shape with clearly defined edges. A clear cap is one whose cap is perfectly clear. A broken cap is one where the light area of the cap is more or less broken by dark feathers in the defined oval shape. A non-cap is one where the light coloured cap of the crown of the head is entirely absent and is replaced by dark feathers of the normal pattern. Clear capped or non capped, cocks or hens, may all attain an equal standard and broken capped birds which are equal to the ideal in all respects other than the cap will lose only a proortion of the 10 points for the cap. Covert feathers The edging of colour on the feathers of the wing butts and covert feathers which should be black and distinctly laced. Eyelash A line of dark feathers passing above the eye of the bird and giving a good finish to the appearance of the cap. Beak, legs and feet The beak, legs and feet are dark. Steadiness, staging and size Steady and staged correctly. In perfect condition. Size not to exceed 12.5 cm .
SHOW CAGE: Colour canaries type show cage with 2 round perches 12 mm in diameter, 12 cm apart.
