    I know that the splash have sliver/gray legs but I am not sure about the black or the whites that come with the blues. Do they have gray legs or could the whites have yellow legs and the blacks black leg?

    I don't know but you could google them or check 'feathersite.com' and see if you get your answer.

    I don't think the leg color would change. If they are older hens that have been laying, their legs might bleach out.

    Anconas, brown leghorns, and minorcas will look like black andalusians. The first two have yellow legs.

    Keep you eye on that ear drum. If it is smaller, probably Andalusian, if bigger, probably Minorca (if that is a possibility).

    But afaik, all Andalusians should have the slate blue legs. I would think yellow would be out of the question. There are all colors of leghorns with white earlobes and yellow legs.

    Quote:I wouldn't be a Minorca because Meyers Hatcher doesn't have them. And her legs are very black. Her body does look like the splash I have. But to me the legs were wrong. I can't seem to find anyone who will tell me if Andalusians can have black legs if they are black.
