I have buff Orpington chicks about 3 or 4 weeks old. I picked them up from TSC so I'm not exactly sure of their age. I noticed this one has a white dot on its ear and I have never noticed that on any of our Orpington chicks before. Non of the other ones have that white dot. Is this normal?

"What's that white dot?" Sorry, an attempt at a Seinfeld line converted to fit.

Genetic variability. Unless it looks abnormal in any way other than color, chalk it up to the "box of chocolates" theory. "You never know what you're gonna get."
