    I have a 13 wk old pullet that I thought was a brown leghorn (MPC rainbow special). The other day I happened to catch her (she was holding still for a millisecond) and noticed her earlobes look like they are going to be turquoise! I'll try to get pictures of her later but just wanted anyone's thoughts on this. She should have red earlobes right?

    Ok, so I just looked again and she should have white earlobes, do they look turquoise in the beginning?

    I'll bet they'll lighten up as she gets older.

    They look normal. After she starts laying she will loose her color
