Temperament: Blue Andalusian's do not do well in captivity because they prefer foraging. Unlike some other active breeds, Andalusian's are known to be quite gentle.
History: Blue Andalusian's originated in Spain, in Andalusia. We do know that they were first exhibited in Britain in 1853, and were imported into the United States around the same time.
)Due to the genetics of the blue plumage color, these BBS Andalusian's will hatch out with plumage of Blue, Black, or Splash (a white or pale color with “splashes” of darker gray or black feathers as seen in the photo). However, in our breeding pen we have lots of blue and splash breeders, so your plumage ratio will lean much more toward blue and splash, with fewer black.
