The Andalusian originates from the Mediterranean. This breed is characterised by bright white earlobes, reddish-brown eyes, a non-sitter and is also a flighty bird. They particularly don’t like to be confined. Despite being clear blue with black lacing around the edges, some fanciers argue that the colour is actually black which can give the illusion of slate blue. Through the mating of two blue birds, it is possible to obtain offspring with black feathers and splash (mottling). The ideal colour is slate blue as the other two are not eligible to be shown.
