    I know everyone has hashed over earlobe color and egg color, but my cuckoo Marans has presented a new question. she has regular red earlobes and lays a brown egg like normal. But her earlobes this spring are turning almost purple red, with a white blush over top. She seems healthy and normal.

    What's gives?

    BTW it is Digger, and she is approaching 1 year of age. She brooded and raised 1 chick last fall. Is she going broody?
