    One of mine has lime green ear lobes, and laid an almost light pink egg today. Not off white, not light brown, but very almost undetectable light pink.....

    Does anyone have ones with lime green earlobes??

    Thanks in advance....

    How FUN! I have 1 white Leghorn and she should lay any time now, she has been squatting for a week now. She has white lobes BUT they are irradescent (SP??) With a green sheen, so who knows! I thought all White Leghorns with white lobes laid white eggs, but I am sure there can be different shades??? LOL! I kind of hope she lays an off white egg cause all of my other girls lay or will be laying shades of brown and I have 3 EE's. I'd like to hear what others have to say! Can you post a pic of the egg?? And maybe of the chicken?? [​IMG] please [​IMG]

    Do you have a pic? Maybe it is a white Easter Egger. Here's a picture of my white Leghorn to compare....

    My leghorn just started laying last week but her eggs are white although I have noticed that she does have a slightly green earlobe. I don't know what to tell you about the pink egg. Here is a picture of her from another thread here on BYC. Her first egg is shown in post 220 and her picture is shown in link 225. https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=524071&p=23

    Can get a pic of her tomorrow, but am really sure she is a white leghorn. HUGE floppy comb though. LOL

    A young pic of her earlobe. Lime green.

    She is just adorable and sweet with me.....She is in solitary confinement due to being so nasty with the other hens. She was attacking them.

    Tomorrow is reintroduction day. We shall see. Think I will let her in the coop, and let the others see her through the screen door, for a bit, before I open the pop door. I am afraid she will do the same. She was never like this before I switched her food. So she has been back on the original type of food for a week now......

    Plan on buying a flock block today at work too. Maybe if I throw a few pieces here and there in the run, that might help too !! ???
