    This question may already have been asked but there were many pages to go through in my search. I have a few hens I mistakenly bred that had white earlobes. So I have a bunch of chicks from them and wondered at what age I will begin to see which ones might have the white lobes so I can cull. And also, does it take many generations to breed out? Thanks for your help
