I'm not clear on the genetics of earlobe color, but the crosses I've seen have partially white earlobes. 

 

He's a beautiful boy. The OP could put him over white egg layers and see what color the offspring pullets lay. 

Ah yes, Iv'e forgotten about the crest.

It's one of those features that make one realize what a labor of love the CCL really was. The originator (forget his name right off) didn't have to make them so pretty, with the barring and the crests, but he went ahead and bred those in. Couldn't have been easy, but apparently was important to him :)

If you cross your rooster with a Legbar hen, the offspring would definitely be EE.
