    It could just be in her genes. Just like some birds can be born with the wrong number of toes or wrong comb, birds can be born with a wrong earlobe color.

    Looks like white to me. When a bird with a white or even slightly pink earlobe is young, it will have a blue/purple cast to it. As the boy matures, it should fade. Otherwise, it's normally considered a fault if the pink stays there. The blue is fine though.

    It doesn't exactly look like a buff-laced polish, just buff...

    Quote:That's what Buff Laced is. People just called it Buff Laced because it is buff and laced. You actually cannot get a bird with buff lacing.

    Not true, really. there are varieties in the UK and Europe that have a darker color and have buff lacing. I saw some pictures a while back and thought they were so cool. But, alas, they have all the really cool and different stuff over on their side of the pond.

    But to answer the question is there white laced, NO. There are some that have whitish penciling in their feathers, but they call it silver. You would have white or you have black. The next closest thing would be mottled color. Look at Mottled Jave and Mottled Cochin to see what I mean.

    I hope this answers your question devin0.
