They are very similar in color to the Blue Breda, but they could never be confused because they lack the feathered legs, lack vulture hocks, lack the cavernous nostril, lack the tassel cresting and of course have a comb. Below is the Breda Cockbird that I was breeding before I went to a single breed flock.
As gorgeous as the Andalusians are I have become enraptured with the Blue Bredas. We were mis-sent a Blue Breda cockerel that we fell in love with but re-homed him with a friend because we are not zoned for roos. Then I quickly found another breeder who sent us a Blue Breda pullet and we absolutely adored her also. This is an amazing breed and after going through 13 chicken breeds in 5 years I have found a lovely-temperament medium LF that is a great flockmate in my mixed flock of Silkies and Ameraucana. This is an amazing breed all-round for my smaller backyard flock!!! Our hen is an amazing bright white egg layer also which surprised me for a 4-lb girl. I will take the good-tempered Breda for white eggs over any of the assertive Mediterranean class breeds. It's been difficult for me to find a good white layer breed that would get along with docile breeds - our Breda has been a prolific layer.
The 4-month-old cockerel we re-homed - outgoing, curious, unafraid, friendly. His new owners say he welcomes himself into their house and sometimes takes over the dog bed for his nightly roosts. They rescue roosters and battery hens and say they've never had such a friendly and lovely rooster before!
The 4-month-old pullet we got after re-homing the cockerel - she is also outgoing, curious, unafraid, and pesty-friendly. The fluffy feet feathers lose length once the Bredas are outdoors and foraging but the fluff wears down to a manageable length for them.
Thank you @GaryDean26 for all your help when I was first looking into this lovely breed. Your input along with a couple other owners gave me the boost I needed to try this feather-footed beauty that I otherwise might've missed. There are many colors to choose from with this breed but we get the most complements from visitors on the Blue Breda.
