    He is a 16 week old EE & I just need someone to conform that those large white strips are his earlobes. I am new & have never seen white earlobes nor have I seen earlobes so large.

    Yup.

    Actually, I am no expert, so I should modify my answer to: Yup, *I* think those are his earlobes.

    Is your bird rumpless? If so it may be a araucana or araucana cross, not an ee
