    It's possible it's jaundiced though it's not necessarily the most likely reason for the yellowing. I recall something, vaguely, I read a a child about emus in breeding season having breeding colors showing in the skin of the head, but I thought blueish was more the go rather than yellow. Having said that, there will always be genetic variations and perhaps this is just one of them.

    Best wishes.
