    I thought he might be a Blue Orpington?
    But he seems to be the wrong shape
    and not heavy enough to be an Orpington?
    But he is young & still growing.
    Could he possibly be a Blue Andalusian?
    This breed description seems to fit better with his shape/size.

    He is about 12 weeks old.

    He is a Blue Andalusian. A very nice one too.

    Agreed. A nice Blue Andalusian. This is a Blue Orpington rooster:

    Thanks for the photo speckledhen
    Nice to have a comparison to look at.
    Just as I thought, he is much to light to be
    an Orpington.
    lol, He looks good, but is such a pain!
    He torments ALL the chickens. they are all afraid of him.
    All the hens RUN & scatter whenever he is around.
    He is the King of the coop!

    Nor*Cal Chick: Do you have any pics of him when he was 6 - 8 weeks old. I am trying to determine if my Blue Andalusian is a boy or a girl. It looks girl shaped, but makes boy noises! Thanks!

    Hi Jackie,
    After digging around in my Photo file I found some pictures
    of both the roo & pullet at the same age. . .
    about 8 - 9 weeks old.
