    I was given 3 -10 month old pullets. The lady did not know what kind they were but said they were laying white eggs.
    They have the same coloring as my Easter Egger but have white ear lobes.
    Their comb is split on the top and lays down on either side. Sorry but I do not have a picture at this time.
    Please help as I cannot find a picture of them.
    Thanks!

    I hope you can find a picture.

    In the meantime, what color are the feet?
    Are there feathers on the feet?

    Is there any pattern to the coloring like a lace pattern?

    How about body built? Round and plump OR more lean like a Egg Machine.

    What type of comb?

    Without a picture for us to look at - We need more hints.
    White eggs and white earlobes - that matches.
    EE feather color and egg color do not match .

    I assume its one of the buff patterned ones?


    Maybe a Sicilian Buttercup? You said something about a "Split Comb"

    Thanks everyone. I would say looks like the Sicilian Buttercup.
