    What is the correct shade?

    Do their feet get darker over time or what their born with stays...
    ?

    Should be slate to black. Same for skin. Comb/wattles should be mulberry to black.

    Combs tend to lighten over time; skin pretty much stays the same. However, occasionally a toe or two in a chick will be light coloured, but will darken to the correct colour as the bird matures.

    My buff's feet are lighter than my blue's feet...

    I don't think he will be of the same quality then
