    What breeds have light bluish earlobes?

    I have a mixed pullet about 6 months with them. Just curious what breed the trait may have come from.

    Thanks

    My silkie has blueish earlobes, but a picture will help to identify your chicken, otherwise its a shot in the dark

    I dont expect to ever know what the cross(es) are. Just think the bluish earlobes are neat, so wondered where it might come from.

    When searching I found Spitzhauben listed as having blue earlobes. Seen they also have a crest and a simular speckled pattern, although color and i believe type are certainly off.

    Some reason its not letting me load a picture from my phone. I'll see if i can atleast figure out how to link to the older (younger) post

    I think she could be a gold Spitzhauben cross. The legs are the slate color, and the right earlobe color. Has the right feather pattern on some of her, and has a tiny crest. The comb also looks mixed between types.

    She looks a bit like a Golden Lakenvelder to me. She's probably a mix.

    I think it is a silkie mix.
