While we were out in the chicken coop installing the new nest box and interacting with the hens, I made a startling discovery: Toast had blue earlobes! Her beard is quite burly so I’d never actually seen them before. I didn’t know blue ear lobes was a thing.
Cue a Google search… Sure enough, there are a few breeds of chicken that can have green or blue earlobes.
The only problem is, after we finished what we were doing and picked her up again to get a picture, they weren’t blue anymore!
“Hey Google: Do chicken earlobes act like a mood ring, changing colors according to their moods?” … Yep.
Huh, you learn something new every day.
