|These beautiful blue fowl originated in Andalusia in Spain, but have long
been beloved in the United States. Their delicate, blue-laced plumage makes them a popular bird for show. Shanks
and toes are blue, as well. The ideal feather color is
slate blue with a narrow lacing of darker blue. The male has a cape of
lustrous blue-black, sometimes shading almost to a dove gray. The hens are good layers of large white
eggs, and they seldom go broody.
Andalusians deal well with heat, but like other Mediterranean breeds, their large combs can be subject to frostbite. They are active birds, and only somewhat tolerant of confinement. They do better on range. If they must be confined, they should have plenty of room.
A flock of these misty, blue birds decorating your yard is such a lovely sight: when you have a large group of them, it's almost as if fog has taken avian form. You will be proud to own them.
THE COLOR BLUE: Remember: blue does not breed true. Chicks from these eggs will hatch approximately 50% blue, 25% black and 25% splash.
Shipping: Eggs are shipped via USPS Priority Mail. No need to
choose a faster shipping method besides 'Ground'. If you'd like eggs
