|Normal Grey||The normal grey should be of an even and uniform depth of color, free of marbling or lighter areas.
A consistency in overall tone is of more importance than depth of color.
|Cinnamon||A more pronounced brown shade (as when contrasted to normals) lacking any grey overtones,
is preferred. A uniform depth of color, free from marbling (more common on the back and wings of some
males due to a loss of melanin pigment) is desirable. Some hens may have more yellow (lipochrome pigment) on the face than their normal grey counterparts.
|Lutino||The lutino is a white bird with an orange cheek patch, some yellow pigment, pink feet and red eyes.
Some individuals vary with a light to heavy yellow wash over part or most of the body. Long tail feathers and primary flights will not be severely faulted for being a lighter shade of yellow than the body. Baldness occurring behind the crest, as an inherited trait, will be penalized in accordance to its degree (or rewarded for its absence). Ideally, there should be no bald spot.
|Pearl||"Lacings" should be extensive, uniform and well defined, with enough grey for contrast and
free from splotching or defects in pattern. Hens should carry the pearl lacings over the back, wings,
mantle and nape, with a heavier concentration on the shoulder. Yellow or white flecking on the breast
is not unusual on heavier marked pearls. Adult pearl males who retain some degree of their lacings will
be preferred. These lacings should be of a true pearl design, rather than the light spottings of normal
males in the ticked class. Ideally the pearl markings will be a deep buttercup yellow.
|Pied||Ideally, a desirable pied will carry a clear mask, free from extraneous grey feathers or "bleeding"
from the orange cheek patch, clear tail and wing flights and a perfect balance of markings. The ideal Pied will be 75% yellow and 25% dark grey The aim being for tail and wing flights to be totally clear. All things being equal, a light pied with perfect symmetry of markings would be preferred to a heavier pied with more irregular markings.
|Whiteface||"Charcoal grey" in color, lacking the orange cheek patch and yellow pigment. The whiteface is devoid
of all lipochrome pigment. Mature adult males will carry a white face as opposed to the yellow mask worn
by other varieties.
|Rares||Sexlinked Yellowcheeks, Dominant Yellowcheeks, Recessive Silver, Fallow, Dominant Silver, Emerald, Gold Cheek & Creamface|
