Big mistakes:

The head is not proportional to the size of the pigeon, to the group, too broad with a high forehead or clearly lowered downwards. Fat, short, bright beak; too big, pink wax waxes, eye with a different color than in the standard; eyebrow too bright, orange or too wide. Red feathers on the neck of blue ones, too bright blue on the head, neck and back. Color on the back too long, creating an apron on the tail.

Comments for the evaluation:

Shape of the figure - head - beak, about, eyebrow and their color - posture - color - drawing – the structure of the plumage of the legs – general look.
