Blue Andalusian Chickens are gorgeous birds that originated from Spain and arrived in the US sometime between 1850 and 1855. They are recognized for their long flowing tail and hackle feathers, large combs and wattles, and large white earlobes. They are not well suited for cold climates but do handle the heat quite well and they thrive in free-range environments.

Andalusians lay 4-6 white or slightly tinted medium size eggs each week and are known as non-sitters. Andalusians are active yet gentle.
