    No. Are they hatchery or a mix?

    Nope. Sounds either like someone's project for Silver Laced Orpingtons, a mutt, or some sort of common hatchery mix-up.

    Wyandottes should have yellow legs. Even if one had slate genes and yellow, the legs would appear green.

    The lady said they came from a hatchery but don't recall which one. She had a melting pot of birds running around there so there is no telling.
