    No because of the yellow legs, Americana have slate colored legs.

    Sorry I haven't a clue, most blue breeds have slate legs, where did you get them and were you told anything about them? Some others might be more familiar with them.

    Wondering if they are bantam. Looking at wing carriage kind of looks like they are bantam.
    Have you looked up Blue Andalusian?

    Can their feet still be changing colors at this age?

    The feet color does change a bit as they grow, they will darken. They do have an unique stance to them, are they standard or bantam?

    Thinking Blue Andalusian if they are standard. My gal has large wings and as a chick she did carry them lowish.

    Perhaps not what you were looking to add to your flock but I do adore my ole gal. She still lays 4 to 6 eggs a week at 5 years old. Skittish but pretty and good forager too. It is a breed I could recommend.

    Keep us posted for sure as I could be wrong on the breed and am always interested in what they end up being.
