Yes, chickens have ears. They are located on the side of the head, where you would expect to see an ear, except they are flush with the skin, so you have to know what to look for. The ear is a circular opening into the ear canal protected by a covering of small feathers.

Immediately below the ear is the ear lobe. If it is totally red, the chicken is a brown egg layer. If it has a whitish or pale center which may or may not be surrounded by red, then it is a white egg layer. Blue egg layers are difficult to verify by earlobe identification. In Heritage breeds the earlobes do not always match the egg color.
