    Hey all! I am going to be including three photos of each of my "Blue Andalusian" chicks. We bought these from a breeder and she said pullets. I am semi-trusting that determination right now! I have a few questions and I would love to see if you guys could help me out!
    1) She said Blue Andalusian... I only see black. They are 5 weeks. Input?
    2) I was told pullets. One is a little smaller with a short and kind of stubby tail. The other is slightly larger with a good 2-3" tail. The long tail (chick #1) has really taken to having stand offs with my Welsummer Roos.

    Thank you all ahead of time,
    Jessie

    Both look like pullets.

    Thank you so much! I was really worrying due to the size difference and tail-length difference. Would you agree they look more like black Andalusians? Or does the "blue" come in later?

    I believe they will be more black than blue, although I have had some younger ones surprise me before but these will most likely stay dark like this.

    Awesome! I was really hoping for the blue, but I think black hens would look great in my mix! We have Egyptian Fayoumis and Crested Cream Legbars as well :)
    Thank you again!
