    I have this rooster that I think is an EE but he has yellow earlobes. I've not seen an EE with yellow earlobes before.

    He does look like an EE with that color and those green legs, but he doesn't have a beard and muffs. His comb looks like a couple of my EEs combs though. Hmmm...not really sure. I would say he is an EE, but I could be wrong.

    Yup, EE... they come in all shapes, sizes and colors.

    No way to tell whether he's an EE unless you are getting colored eggs from his offspring or you know what his parentage is (and I don't think you do or you wouldn't be asking!) Oh, and I have a couple of EE pullets with white ears and one with red. It has no correlation whatsoever to egg color.

    No, I don't know what his parentage is. I believe he was purchased at Tractor Supply Co.

    if he was purchased at ts then he's more than likely a beardless ee
