    I asked this once before but noone had any answers. What are these yellow spots on my roo's lobes. I really would like to know because he would make a nice show bird if he didnt have them. Thanks for any advice. [​IMG] ]

    Questions and suggestions.....

    Does he have two matching ones? Are they exactly the same on both sides? What breed is he? (Have you asked a breed expert, someone who shows the same breed, or a breeder, etc.?) How old is he? Does he have any offspring and are they or have they devloped the same trait?

    Seek out, ask Illia. (user list)

    I am sorry, I don't know... but, if they are the same on both sides, if they match, don't hurt, are not growing after he is full grown, etc.? Maybe they are normal for him, a genetic anomaly or even breed trait, even if rare??

    I agree, the tie is great. He's beautiful with or without those "growths". Good luck.

    Maybe it's just a little off-coloring of the lobe or something. I have some chickens that have lobes that are half-white, half-red. I don't know about the other color though. Is it on both lobes, or just that one side?

    I have no idea what the yellow spots are. I think people are thinking the lobes are the abnormality but it's the yellow spots, not the lobes themselves.

    Any chance they could be stains of some sort? Have they gotten bigger? How long has he had them? Does he have them on both lobes?

    I have to add - I absolutely love him with that tie! He's a gorgeous boy!

    Edited to add - you might have more luck posting this question in the thread for his breed (in the breeds section) because you'll get people who are more experienced than we are with his breed.

    If they are on both sides, could they be earrings as he looks like he's going out somewhere! [​IMG]
