Baby Chicks: Blue/Black/Splash Andalusian
|Other Breeds Available
Developed in the Andalucia region of Spain, Andalusians are closely feathered, active and good layers of large white eggs. Their color and perky nature make them a great addition to any backyard flock. (They love to forage, so don't purchase them if you plan to keep your flock fully confined!)
Due to the genetics of the blue plumage color, these BBS Andalusians will hatch out with plumages of Blue, Black, or Splash (a white or pale color with "splashes" of darker grey or black feathers as seen in the photo). When breeding blue to blue, you end up with a mix of 50% blue, 25% black and 25% splash. 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.
