    Hello. I'm new to raising chickens. Was given 3 brown leg horns in August that turned a year old this passed September.one of my hens earlobes has changed from white to yellow. Would that be something that happens during molting?

    Welcome to BYC. I never heard of changing ear color. Maybe she thought yellow would go better with earrings. [​IMG] Sorry just kidding, think I need more sleep.
