TOLBUNT POLISH

The plumage color is at 50 percent dark golden bay and 25 percent black (as lacing) with 25% white (as mottling) on the feathers irregularly marked (patterned) and equally divided and distributed over the entire body. A predominate number of feathers on the overall bird will display black lacing compared to those that lack lacing. Concentration of mottling (white) to be same as description for mottled plumage page 37, however the base color of the feathers is as described in this description.

DISQUALIFICATIONS

CREST: Crests are allowed to show larger amounts of white in plumage. In
         cockerels, mottled; black laced with dark golden bay, which after
        first moult should be dark golden bay with a predominate
         amount of feathers laced in lustrous black.
BEARD: mottled; Black. Due to pattern, mottling, and feather size this area displays   little, if any, dark golden bay.
NECK: mottled; dark golden bay with a predominate amount of feathers laced in
           lustrous black
Front of Neck: - same as BREAST.
BACK AND SADDLE: mottled; dark golden bay with a predominate amount of
          feathers laced in lustrous black
TAIL: Tails are allowed to show larger amounts of white in plumage.
Main Tail- mottled; dark golden bay with a predominate amount of feathers
                 laced in lustrous black.
