Blue Andalusian's are attractive chickens that lay lots of eggs and enjoy foraging. Production: You can expect about 160 white eggs annually from a Blue Andalusian hen.

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.

Our minimums are based on your zip code, and how long the USPS tells us it will take for your order to arrive at your post office. Find out your minimum chick order * Any order of 15+ chicks ships via USPS Priority Mail service, and 3-14 chicks ship via USPS Express Mail.

* Breed photos may not be representative of the parent breeding stock. In some cases our photos are of winning exhibition lines of poultry. The blue color comes from a hybrid cross between the black and white varieties.

To be absolutely certain of getting blue offspring, you need to cross a white cock with a black hen. They are very pretty birds, with light and dark blue plumage and an upright, elegant and graceful appearance.

Andalusian's are small, active birds which can be rather noisy and although they are still quieter than many of the Mediterranean breeds, the noise factor may need consideration. The hens lay early at around 5 or 6 months of age, but they don’t go broody often so aren’t natural sitters.

They don’t really enjoy human contact and prefer free ranging to confinement as they are good foragers and economical feeders. They are hardy but their combs can suffer from frostbite so care should be taken when temperatures plummet and exposure to a lot of sun can fade their plumage so positioning their runs in the shade is a good idea.

I thought they were both roosters but when I posted a picture of them for sale, I had 5 different people tell me 1 was a hen and 1 was a rooster. I've heard of hens crowing, but they also look the same with the comb and wattles.

The darker was the too and the lighter with only the tail showing is the “hen”. I thought they were both roosters but when I posted a picture of them for sale, I had 5 different people tell me 1 was a hen and 1 was a rooster.

Can you post a full body picture of the lighter Andalusian ? It's strange that they're still not showing male saddle feathers...

The one in front is definitely a male and I do see saddle feathers. I can clearly see pointed saddles feathers on the Andalusian in the front of the picture.

I have one mottle pair, white pair and a lavender trio for sale in Maryborough QLD $40 a pair for mottle and white or $60 for the trio of lavender (thinking one too two hens.
