I have a flock of about 20 Easter Eggers, plus a few others. I have found that my EE's that have a white ear, or mostly white; tend to lay a light colored egg. Is this a coincidence? I know that in most breeds, a red ear means a brown egg layer, while a white ear indicates a white egg layer. But Easter Eggers do not breed true, and I'm not sure if the gene for egg color is related to the gene for ear color. I know that the gene for pea comb is related to the blue egg gene, and my pea comb-ish hens do tend to lay blue or green eggs.
