Have you ever seen a chicken’s earlobe? The skin on the side of a chicken’s face is usually referred to as the “earlobe.”If you’re ever wondering what color eggs a hen will produce, you can often figure it out just by looking at the “earlobe”! Although it’s not true for all types, a hen’s earlobe color can often indicate the color of eggs it lays! – The darker the earlobe, the darker the eggshell color! NEAT!
