    I don't know if this a silly question, but should my chicken's ears turn blue?

    Sorry if this is normal, but I'm still a newbie! She's a Light Sussex bantam, about 5 months old and otherwise happy and healthy. I've had a close look and it's not something blue on the surface on the skin.

    Thanks

    Should be normal! [​IMG] When hens get older, their ear lobes turn a different color which means the color eggs they lay. So its completly normal!

    Thanks so much for your quick reply! I was getting a bit worried and couldn't find any information about this elsewhere!
