    Okay so I am on the road to discovery right now, as my supposed OEGB girl (who was to replace one of my earlier exhibition girls who's comb got bit) has a lengthy tail and has outgrown our D'Anver and other OEGB she grew up with... She so far matches my assumptions that she may actually be a bantam Black Breasted phoenix, other than 2 things...

    -Her legs are yellow like a welsummers
    -She SO FAR has a completely red face.

    So here's my question. At what age does the white in the earlobe seem to kick in?

    I can see the white on my white Leghorn pullet's lobes now, at 9 weeks.
