    I purchased this hen along with some Black Austrolop, and I believe it to be a Blue Austrolop, a wonderful little hen who lays very well, not quite as large as the Black Austrolops but sure resembles them,
    Can anyone give some insight in to what they think or believe.

    Looks like you're right. Little Blue Australorp girl.

    Andalusians have white ears, this hen has red. The body type isn't proper for an Orpington, so Blue Australorp sounds like the best possibility.

    You can ask the owner. Blue Australorps are not common, and they would know if they have any in their flock.

    Not an Andalusian; looks like a gorgeous blue Australorp!
