That is awesome. Post pics when they hatch so we can see their chick down phenotype??
My andalusian eggs from Tom Roebuck have lots of veins and swimmer.  Crossing fingers!
My black chicks from John Blehm are growing like crazy.  They are at that goofy gangly stage.  I put them into an outside pen today.  Gotta clear out room in my brooder for the andalusians!  Again.. crossing fingers.  :oD

I have the first of the F1 on this project. 1 that is a week old and 4 that are just a day old. I will be posting pic later today on this but they appear to have more white or cream on them then normal. The week old chick is out of Blue Andalusion Cockeral on a Blue Ameracana hen. The second batch are from a Black Ameracana Cock on Slash Andalusion pullets and some from the first group also.  I have more to hatch on Sunday for the next 4 weeks. Off to a good start. Hoping for some pullets in the group.

Blue Andalusian update:
Here are some of my andalusian chicks!  They are 6 weeks old.  I thought I would post these pics so that we can see what 6 week old chicks look like that are carrying all the pattern genes that we want in our laced blue ameraucanas.
One day far in the future I hope to be hatching blue ameraucanas that will have this awesome lacing.

This is what I got when I hatched some Blue Andalusians.  I scrapped the whole hatch.  I don't want the hens passing red leakage onto their sons.  I kept one hen and put her in my egg flock.  Going to use Silver Laced Wyandottes.  I have had some for years.  I actually have some crosses already.  I will cross brother and sister in the spring.  I am trying to find a Silver Laced Cockerel/Cock to use this fall.  I am not having much luck.  I don't want to breed brother and sister.  I want to cross with opposite crosses to keep the genes fresh.  As soon as I can, I will get some pics of the crosses.  I have a black cockerel that has white "speckles" right now, and 2 pullets.  One is black the other is blue.  No sign of "speckles' yet.  I have this one hen that is old as dirt.  She is a SLW x Blue Andalusian cross.  She lays a pretty large pink egg.  She is black with a lot of white in her feathers.  I am thinking of putting her with my splash rooster, and seeing what happens???  I have some of the eggs in the incubator now actually now that I am thinking of it.  This hen, her name is Tippy lays an egg everyday!!!  I will see if I have any pics of her.

Here's a picture (I just took today) of one of my blue pullets. She was hatched March 15th so she is now 5 and a half months old. I'm happy to see she ended up with the color she has since she was pretty dark the first 4 months. Thank you, Paul, for teaching me not to be too quick to judge them before 5-6 months old.

To my novice eye it looks like you've got a pretty good pullet there, Sharon.

Sharon she is beautiful!  I am taking notice that the hens with the darkest head seam to have the best edging/lacing.  I have a pullet that looks a lot like yours color wise and, I am very thrilled with her.
