    It is white ear lobes...
    They are very normal, and I believe they are a requirement to show the White Leghorn.. (Not sure about S.S. but I would guess so.)


    Oh yeah, and the hen in the picture isnt a White Leghorn or a Speckled Sussex. Is it a picture of your hen?

    I couldn't remember the name of the speckled one but it lays brown eggs. The white one was advertised as a white leghorn when i bought it. So these chickens are suppose to have white ears? Okay then not to be alarmed about it. Thanks G

    First one almost looks like a Golden Campine.
