What term is applied to the pendent growths at the sides and base of the beak of chickens?

Wattles. Which is why people of a certain age are said to develop wattles on their neck.

BUT, BUt, But, but, it didn't say neck, it said "beak". That is what got me, I kept for the life of me trying to think of something that grew out of the beak.
