    I have two BA's out of my bunch that have green eyes... The others have brown.

    i've noticed the green eyed ladies are the friendliest. Wondered if maybe there was a gene connection there that someone else had fooled with or noticed.

    They did change actually. From brown to green. Theyre nearing 10 weeks old now.

    They should have BROWN eyes, no yellow or green in them. It is due to the Orp blood in them. If it is a hatchery stock, then its a wild card in regarding to the eye colors.
