Lambi in English or wattles is two elongated, fleshy, thin lobes of skin that hang down from the lower side of a chicken's head. Both male and female chickens have wattles, which help them to stay cool during warmer weather. Wattles are often removed from fighting roosters including the earlobes for both safety and aesthetics.
