    My chicks currently seem to have different eye color. Would this change as they grow up?

    Mine have different eye colors. For example my rooster's eyes are bright orange, while my easter egger's are a muted brown.

    Yes, different breeds have different colors and the hatchery kinds are the ones that got the colorful eyes!

    A few of them would have yellow, blue, green, hazel, light brown, dark brown and grey.
     
  5. This is not a matter to be worried about..I am having a different breed of chicks that have grey and green colored lenses..It's normal and it will not affect the chicks..
