    I just found out that my white baby coturnix that just hatched 3 days ago has bright pink eyes when i see it under the light. Could they be albino's, they have one or two small black spots.

    Quote:you answer your own question....albino would not have any black spots. might be the reflection off the retina that your seeing...kinda like whn you shine a light into dogs eyes.
