    It probably is a silkie, sometimes they appear larger than bantam size because of all their fluff. I'm not sure if there's another chicken breed with teal earlobes; however, there are some rare and weird breeds out there, so maybe.

    Okay thank you folks I just looked it up and yes it is the Silkies that have the teal ear lobes. I'm going to be ordering some but not till next year. I have enough chicks right now.
