    I don't see any hackles or sickle feathers but its comb & waddles sure are big. Has little spurs too. I have not heard any crowing, nor gotten any eggs from this bird. Its missing a few tail feathers 'cause it decided to fly over the fence when two of my dogs were in the backward and, well, those tail feathers were just too tempting. I think that's why it looks more upright...plus andys are more upright birds anyway.

    What do you think? Thanks!

    Andalusian hens have combs that are as large as the combs of many other breeds roosters.

    Looks like my hens, but I suppose it depends on the age of the bird. Mine are 10 months old now and both are laying well.

    my blue andy had a large comb, but this bird's comb is HUGE, plus the size of the spurs puzzled me. The bird is over 6mths old. I cracked open an egg yesterday that appeared to have a bulls eye spot on the yolk..sort of made me question the sex of this bird...all the birds are supposed to be hens. [​IMG]

    I have two other splash andy pullets..total of three. I need to downsize my flock & want to rehome 2 of the andys...sure don't want to give my friend a rooster.
