Goatucation: Really Chickucation - The Blue Andalusian

So today I am going to teach you all about Blue Guy or as he is more formally known - The Blue Andalusian Rooster.  Blue Guy is our exotic rooster. When the male person ordered his chicks last spring he received one exotic. If you remember, we didn't know what that little chick was going to be for quite a while.

But that little chick grew up to be Blue Guy.

He is a pretty rooster, isn't he.  
The Blue Andalusian is named after the Province of Andalusia in Spain and is one of the oldest Mediterranean Breeds. The lovely slate blue color came about by breeding black and white birds.  Sometimes if you breed two blues together you will get a white bird - isn't that funny?

They are decent egg layers (well not the roosters!) and very fast runners. I can attest to that. I have seen Blue Guy tear across the goat pen like a crazed bird! Usually to attack the publicist!

I hope you liked learning about Blue Guy's breed of chicken.

Tomorrow:  More video!
