    Interesting! I'd love to know how much of what colors you end up getting.

    Most likely they will! Just keep an eye out on their wing feathers, if they stay blue, they will be blue.

    We tried crossing white Leghorns gals to Buff, and Blue Wheaton roosters and got alot of white with black odd feathers on their bodies. Beautiful birds but if we cross those offsprings to a Blue roo, we would get at least half blues and have splashes.

    Good luck!

    Very interesting and something I have thought about doing. I have a rescue mission Leghorn Roo and a few Andalusian hens may be worth a shot this spring.
