Originating in Mexico 2000 years ago, Blue Slates were taken to Europe and then brought to the American Colonies. They were recognized as a standard breed in the U.S. in 1874. They come in three color phases: solid black, solid blue and blue flecked with black spots. Many times the birds are a combination of each phase coloring. These beautiful birds are of medium size and quite rare.
We strive to carry only the healthiest and best birds. In order to do so, we do not offer tours of our facilities or bird pens to the public. This helps our birds remain in a safe and controlled environment that is not exposed to harmful germs, viruses or bacteria. It also helps minimize potential animal stress caused by unfamiliar faces. We appreciate your understanding!
