Yep, BBred OEGB. Not a Dutch, despite the white earlobes. A little history on them will explain that, (Rosecomb blood etc.) Plus they carry game blood/are white egg layers so white earlobes can be expected though frowned upon. Even from an excellent strain of birds, my silver duckwing hen's earlobes would turn white during laying time but I believe changed back to red later on. I've also heard this mentioned by someone who was a master exhibitioner of black fowl I believe.
