I have a small number of gamefowl that I watch very closely. Some of those exhibit the white "earlobe" or red jungle fowl although it is not so white. Additionally, even on a given individividual the degree of whiteness can very. With my games the periods of lay are not continous like for most production breeds owing to my games being prone to go broody. During past with hens observed, hens about to go into lay had brighter elarlobes than they have while laying clutch, during incubation, and rearing of chicks. With current pullet being used to train dog, she has begun to do a lot of the wah-wah-wah I associate with an adult getting ready to start a clutch. She also stimulates a stag with her to identify suitable laying locations. I suspect her earlobes will become more gray once egg production commences.
