    How common are wattles on their ears? I have a doeling born on Sunday who has a wattle on each ear, looks like she has earrings on. I’ve never heard of them on ears before. They’re pretty cute.

    That is adorable. Wattles can be anywhere on the head or neck. Most common is under the chin but ears are not unheard of

    They were a surprise when she came out. Her dam has them on her neck as does her granddam.

    Aww! I love wattles. Some people cut them off, like dew claws on a puppy, but I like them. What a sweet baby!

    I’d feel awful cutting them off, plus I think they are cute. I was just surprised when she came out with them, threw me off for a minute! My husband has named her Gypsy with her big earrings.
