    Wow, A chicken that lays golden eggs. Wanna trade? [​IMG]

    Imp- I actually don't think earlobes are indicators of egg color, but that would be kinda cool.

    Must post pics

    Quote:Earlobes usually do indicate egg color normally white earlobes = white eggs and red earlobes = brown eggs. Not sure about blue egg layers most of my ameraucana have white earlolbes
    I am curios to see what egg color she lays

    earlobe color does not match egg shell color. eg OEGB red earlobe white egg.

    hey Hen69 I think its a general guideline it doesn't apply to all breeds but it does to most anyway yellow earlobes are unusual

    yellow earlobes are common for yellow skinned chickens with "white" earlobes, eg leghorn.
