Blue Andalusian's are gorgeous birds originating from Spain and arrived in the U.S. between 1850 and 1855. They are recognized by their long flowing tail and hackle feathers, large combs and wattles, and large white earlobes. They do not do well in cold climates but can handle heat well. They are hard to tame and may run away from humans. They thrive in free range environments. Like all blue fowl, they produce black and splashed offspring as well as the blue color type. They are white egg layers who will lay throughout the winter and are known as non-sitters.
