It's perfectly normal for certain breeds, depending on genetics, to have white earlobes. Were they rescues or did you raise them yourself? How old are they?

They were white-ish before, with the centre of them being white but now they seem to be much whiter? Why is this? They are ex-bats and I've had them for about 2.4 months...
Likely they are a hybrid or production bird which can have white leakage in the earlobes (genetics). Nothing to worry about, but If you have photos you wish to share that would be good.

It's just that they seem to have become more white... when we first got them they were SO pale. They have become more red and we plan on getting a nutrition supplement. I'll try and get some pics tomorrow :)
