    It doesn't look like a blue Andalusian so that would leave Marans?

    Look to be Marans...although clean legged type. Definitely not Andalusian.

    Andalusion are typically in Blue, which is the only shiowable form, which means also black and splash are available since breeding for Blue (diluted black) always also produces black and splash.

    I am not familiar with cuckoo Andalusion, although it looks like it could be that. It may therefore be a mix of a cuckoo pattern bird and an Andalusian...or somebody's breeding project.
