General appearance and characteristics of the breed

1- FORM
Trunk: long, wide, cylindrical and raised. In the wide and almost horizontal hen.
Head: of medium size, quite wide.
Beak: medium length; with large flared nostrils that form, between them, a small dimple, where the rounded nasal bone rises, at the base of which there is a small caruncle of meat.
Big eyes; red to reddish yellow iris.
Crest: composed of two red croissants, of the same length, straight and cylindrical. Vertical and rounded at their ends; the croissants measure about 1 cm in length. The meat portion in front of the crest forms, in its center, a small pit garnished with tiny feathers. In the hen it is smaller and the nostrils are less flared. This means that the fleshy caruncle is often not present.
Bargigli: long and wide. In the hen small and round.
Face: red; naked or faintly covered with feathers reminiscent of hair.
Mumps: almond-shaped; fine texture; pure white.
Tuft: rudimentary tuft-shaped tuft; composed of small fine and straight feathers implanted on the thick skin of the head. In the most developed hen.
Neck: long and strong; the feathers of the cape are not too long and close-fitting. Shorter in the hen.
Shoulders: wide and slightly enlarged.
Back: flat, wide, long and slightly inclined towards the back. Full rump; medium length plumage.
Wings: carried high and firmly tightened to the body.
Tail: long, flow detected up to a right angle; large, wide and rounded sickles; few small sickles. In the hen fairly closed and lower reach.
Chest: wide and prominent. In the very deep, wide and prominent hen.
Legs: clearly visible; long and strong; in the hen less visible due to the richer plumage. Long and smooth tarsi; in the hen of medium length. Powerful fingers, medium length and well spread.
Belly: full, wide and well developed. In the well-developed hen.
