    I bought 25 strait run Blue Andalusian chicks from Ideal Hatchery recently. Chicks arrived well and happy. I had a trio of these a couple years ago but never hatched chicks from them. These chickens are crazy. They are so spunky and spastic that I know once they are out in the yard I can pretty much kiss those that will free range, good by. I am not at all sure that they will stick around once let out. I spend as much time as I can around them but they are not the cute cuddly type. They make a real pretty bird but golly are they crazy. Does any one have any dealings with them?

    Despite their wildness, they will stay around like other chickens do. Just not that cuddly is all.. plus probably will be very good rangers. Set them in a coop for a while before letting them loose.
