    She just layed a light cream colored egg and I was told when we bought her, she was a cinnamon queen. A quick google search told me they were wrong. I was also surprised she laid because her ears are not red yet. [​IMG]

    On a little Farm.
    She's a BSL/GLW cross. More specifically, her color is melanised gold laced.
    By the way, this thread will probably get moved.

    this should go under what breed/gender

    she has white ear lobs which leds me to think that she is a leghorn or a leghorn mix. more along a mix possable leghorn and glw

    Different breeds have different colour earlobes.
    Her earlobes will always be White, and have nothing to do with whether she is in lay or not.
    Earlobes normally determine egg colour.
    Red earlobes indicate coloured eggs. Shades of brown etc
    Completely white means white eggs.
    And a bit of both can be a wider range like the blue, green, whites, creams etc

    This has been true to all my chickens thus far [​IMG]

    She's probably a Black Sexlink with a white egg layer for one parent, and probably has GLWyandotte in there too, from the rose comb. And like Sailing Dede said, her earlobes will not change color. They'll stay white.

    It's hard to tell, she kinda looks like a poorly laced glw, and it looks like a rose comb, could it be a glw/leghorn mix? She's pretty enough, really has more of a wyandotte body type looking again. Not sure any leghorn went into that shape.
