Chicken earlobes...

When I started this blog I had no idea I'd be typing about chicken earlobes but there you go.

I got to googling and chickens do indeed have earlobes. It's a patch of skin on the side of their heads... see?

I was going to post a photo of my friend Jayne's chickens to show their earlobes but all the pics also feature Jayne's lovely husband 'G' doing a sort of wonderful 'Jane Goodall of the henhouse' impression... I'm guessing he might want to retain his privacy. haha! But I found another pic... this is a chook with white earlobes and so will likely lay white eggs. See the white patch?

OK... now I'm going to go listen for sirens to remind myself that I'm living in an urban environment.
