    My EE is 21 weeks old and seems fine except today I noticed her feathers looked a little pink on one side of her face. I thought maybe it was blood but I didn't see any injury. Does anyone know what this is from? Also I noticed that the area that I think are her earlobes are yellow in the middle. Is that normal? I'm new to this and greatly appreciate your help.

    It's just her skin turning pink. That's a sign that she's getting close to laying! [​IMG] Chicken's faces change colors a lot; it varies with their activity. Sometimes rooster wattles will turn purple when they get mad! Unless one of my girls starts acting weird, then I don't worry about what color their skin is.

    Have fun with you new girls!
