    I’ve read that d’uccles are supposed to have red eyes, but my supposed ‘show quality’ chick has blue/green? Do they change over time? I’m new to show chickens, I’ve only ever raised mixed and Rhode Island reds for eggs

    Yes, the eye color changes over time. Here is one of my own chicks from my show line.
