- The original ancestors of the Andalusian came from Spain, but British poultry fanciers are
believed to be the ones to really perfect the breed. The Andalusian
is most well-known for its striking blue plumage. The ground color of the Andalusian is slate
blue with each feather being laced with darker blue. Their large red combs and wattles and
white earlobes truly make a stunning and beautiful bird. They have an active disposition and
are known to be excellent foragers. The males will develop a large, full tail at maturity along
with long flowing saddle and hackle feathers. They are very prolific egg layers and, like all
Mediterranean breeds, can handle hot temperatures well. This breed hatches black, blue,
and splash coloring; there is no guarantee what color you will receive.
