    I've seen a really wide range of shades of blue. Mine are very dark, almost black and personally I admire the medium shades.

    Is there a preferred color of blue according to a standard, or a preference for show birds?

    The color of the Blue Andalusian is the most sought after. Several people call it "Andalusian Blue" but in reality...it's just the color blue.

    See how the light shades are encompassed by the dark lacing of a darker blue or black???
