    We have a black star chicken, about 5 months old. Just noticed that her ear lobe is looking odd. I was hoping someone could help identify the issue. Is it a disease or what? She does not seem bothered by her ear lobes and only occasionally scratches at them. Please see attached picture and any advice is appreciated. Thanks. [​IMG]

    It doesn't look to be anything to worry about. Could be a scratch, peck or bug bite.
