Blue Andalusian -- 7/09

(Chicken posts will be sorted by breed name and date in the subject.)
I ordered Blue Andalusian chicks, so that we might compare them to my 'handed-down' greys in an attempt to identify the original breed my mother and grandmother may have had.
Here are photos of the Blue Andalusian chicks at 7 weeks of age:

In the photo below, the splashed chicks are Blue Andalusian:

Notes: These are the smartest chicks! They are very very similar to my 'handed-down' greys in that they are always aware of what is going on and are not easily spooked. They never have to be watched and helped back into the coop at night. They are a little too couragous and brave to be entirely safe!!! They are very fast growing.
Postive rating so far!!!!
