    My 20 week old Jersey Giant appears to have white earlobes. We got her from our local feed store. Do Jersey Giants sometimes have white earlobes or do I have a different breed of chicken than I thought? Here is a picture of her from about a month ago. [​IMG]

    No, Jersey Giants don't have white earlobes... they have red...

    Looks like she's most likely a Black Minorca...

    Black Andalusian is another possibility.

    Black Minorca, but I'd need a full body pic to tell for sure.

    Okay sorry I took so long...here are a few more pictures of her. I hope they are helpful! Man if chickens would just hold still for like two seconds it'd be so much easier to get good pictures of them lol!
