    I've been searching and would really like to see a pic of what this looks like. I have seen the way the ear lobes change in pullets and hens. Just wanted to see a really good pic of an ear lobe with enamel. Thanks for any info. [​IMG]

    Yeah, why hasn't anybody made green or blue faced spanish?

    Marvin, you are right. It's much more obvious on naked necks, there is a "something" for pigmentation in ear lobe area only, none on face. It colors the earlobe itself and a little of the area around the lobe in an irregular shape and size. I don't know what it is.

    It's also pretty cool to see "gypsy face" on naked necks, there is a clear(but uneven line) separation for the gypsy face pigmentation vs neck.
