The original ancestors of the Andalusian came from Spain, but British poultry fanciers are believed to be the ones to perfect the breed. The Andalusian is most well-known for its striking blue plumage, with ground color being slate blue and each feather being laced with darker blue. Their large red combs, wattles, and white earlobes make a beautiful bird. They have an active disposition and are known to be excellent foragers. The males will develop a large, full tail at maturity along with long flowing saddle and hackle feathers. Like all Mediterranean breeds, they can handle hot temperatures well. This breed hatches black, blue, and splash coloring; there is no guarantee what color you will receive.
