Chicken (Blue Andalusian)

Gallus Domesticus

Description:

The Andalusian is a breed of chicken originating in the Andalucia region of Spain. Often called the Blue Andalusian for the color accepted for showing by the American Poultry Association, they also appear in Splash (mottled) and Black. They are classified as "Mediterranean" chickens, and like other breeds from this class, they are closely feathered, active, and good layers of white eggs. Although the only color pattern recognized by the American Poultry Association is Blue, when you cross two blues you will get some whites and some blacks. Because of this, they are relatively rare except amongst poultry enthusiasts and small backyard flock owners interested in preserving heritage breeds. These rare egg laying chickens lay up to 160 eggs per year. -Wikipedia
