    Looks more like an Andalusian than a Minorca.

    Quote:Yes- he has a longer body and tail- minorcas look like the birds on the other thread.

    When in doubt count the points...Andys have 5 points Minorca's have six [​IMG] now not sure if that holds true to hatchery and lower quality where they could possibly be cross bred..however yours doesn't have a Minorca body..we have both here.
