Yesterday I noticed that my 6-week-old cockerel, Sam, has ear tufts like Einstein. I did some research and found that this is an Auracana trait. I hatched Sam and his 5 siblings from eggs in which both parents were EE. The other 5 chicks do not show this trait. They all had the same roo dad, but some moms may have been different. I have not seen the parents, so I don't know if any of them have it. Will have to ask the breeder. I have had EE's in past years, but none ever had these ear tufts - usually just muffs. Is it common in EE's?
