    Does anyone else have a blue eyed chicken? I got a half welsummer x amueracana cross that has blue eyes and i'm wondering if they will stay this way? The chick is about 5 weeks old. Really pretty.. has white and blue feathers.

    Only way for you to breed her and get blue eyed chicks is if your rooster has blue eyes or has the trait for it. Remember if you breed her with a rooster and the baby chic's have yellow eyes the baby chickens will still have the trait for the blue eyes.
