they look like hatchery oegb...2 of my hatchery chickens (a d'uccle and a oegb) both have a hint of white on their earlobes and they are both pure breeds. sometimes in hatchery stock different color earlobes can appear. 

 

the hen is a blue. shes not self blue, my blue boy (avatar) is a self blue if you want to see the difference you can go look at my d'uccle pics of him as he is a self blue (who got sun bleached)

 

ok heres a slef blue hen

Nice Self Blue!  She has much better feather quality than most Self Blues.The Lemon Blue's not bad either.
