He likes large lizards, well-fleshed, he doesn’t write down the genealogy, having few couples all his birds are related to each other and therefore it is not deemed necessary. The birds that are small and thin have no place in his breeding team, in fact he asserts, if the lizard does not have a broad chest and back, it will not have enough space for rowings and spangles and the ground color does not express itself at its best.
Years ago he added some birds of Mr. Fernando Fermi, one of the best Italian breeders of lizard of all time, and has recently added a beautiful lizard of Macchioni, the Italian champion, a silver non cap cock of 2012. (photo). He has tried to add other foreign blood but had no benefits.
He begins to breed in mid-February (13 and a half hours of light) and produces the first young in March. The young, after they are weaned, are placed in a large aviary outside of about five meters long, two high and 1.50 wide. The interior has many roosts and show-cages where he puts vegetables or other treats so the youngsters gradually get used to enter without mistrust.

Domenico is a conservative, if a food, a procedure, or equipement is okay, he continues to use it, he does not change. He feeds his lizard with a mixture of 4 seeds plus some little 'sunflower. All year he gives dry soft food, boiled seeds and when possible , immature seeds of dandelions. In soft food he adds a small amount of yellow dye and a bit 'of spirulina, and one boiled egg every 100 gr.

Some advice: whoever wants to try to breed this race should inquire about the feed and the management of breeding but especially the novice should visit as many exhibitions as possible, develop an "eye"for the breed, and then rely on a trustworthy breeder and buy the most beautiful specimens possible.
