    Blue is my favorite color in animals, so I was wondering, what breeds come in blue?

    There are alot of breeds that come in blue...

    Wyandottes, orpingtons, Plymouth rocks, Jersey giants, Ameraucanas, Araucanas, Marans, Andalusians, Cochins, Australorps (sometimes you can find white and blues), barnevelders have a blue laced variety, faverolles have a blue variety, langshans, polish, and cubalaya have a blue-red variety.

    I know there's more, but these are the main ones that come to my mind. Also, I'm not familiar with games or bantams, and I'm sure some of those have blue varieties.

    Quote:You're welcome. They sure can! The blue orpingtons are more common than the rocks. I've only seen pictures of the blue rocks.... I think somebody on BYC breeds them.

    You forgot Araucanas. . .

    But really, I can't think of a breed that doesn't come in some form of blue. [​IMG] - Except, say, Leghorns, New Hampshires, or Rhode Islands. . .
