Ancona with relatively bright yellow legs and ear-lobes

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have 4 Ancona hens 1.5 yrs old and one recently started crowing. This particular chicken also has bright yellow legs and ear-lobes relative to the other hens. I never thought anything of it until now, when she became so noisy. Just curious if there could be a connection. Could the yellow color be a sign of a health problem and the noisy behavior another sign? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to BYC :frow Glad you joined us! I am not familiar with this breed, so I don't know if the yellow earlobes are normal, or not. I'm going to suggest you ask on the Ancona thread:

:frow Hello and Welcome to BYC.

 

If you are certain the one crowing is a hen with proof of having laid eggs or is it a rooster?  Sumi has already given you the link to the Ancona thread.   I would suggest you post the question with a pic to get some experienced input.

Here's a pretty good picture of the chicken in question relative to the others. You can see the stronger yellow color.[
