Blue Andalusian’s are from the Mediterranean class of breeds and originated in Andalusia Spain. Although known as ‘blue’ andalusian’s, in common with other blue breeds they don’t breed true so you could get a blue, black or splash. All have the blue genes and when bred black with splash should give about 50% blue chicks and 25% black and 25% splash. Their feathers are laced with velvety black upon a rich slate-blue ground. They can be quite flighty when young but do tend to settle down when they are older. Andalusians are good layers of large white eggs and pullets begin to lay at around 5 months old and are less likely to go broody than other breeds.
