Blue Andalusians

An Andalusian rooster

This lovely breed was developed in the Spanish province that gave it its name. It is difficult to breed in that you will always produce Black and Splash marked fowl in every clutch. These can be used as breeders, or layers, but are not showable. Andalusians also occur in a bantam form.

They lay a fair sized white egg and are non-setters.
