Rooster has a bit of downy bottom, whitish tail feathers and one whiter sickle, too much red in the ear lobes and comb heel could be rounder.
Hen's barring could be better.
I would add...
short, curved beak
dark, prominent eyes
barring high on the breast (on the hen, but could be better on the rooster. I find that having both clear hackles and barring on the front neck and throat is nearly impossible)
wings tucked high and tight.
good barring in the tail feathers
I would like to see a rounder breast carried more forward. These birds seem substantial through the body, just a bit of tweaking for type would make them even better. I would also like to see a slight slope toward the tail and a less abrupt angle on the tail set.
NONE of these things have I perfected in my own birds! Please don't think I am being more critical of these birds than I am of my own. I am brutal when evaluating my own birds. I only mention these things (positive or negative) because it is what I look at when evaluating my own Campines.
