    Mine always have. If Im answering the question correctly. My chicks always have big black eyes (appear that way anyway) but as the grow older they get a regular adult looking eye. Around 3 weeks old. Ive never heard of them turning red if a rooster though..

    Yes, as they mature, the eye color usually goes from gray or green to orange or bay, etc. Depends on the breed. That's been my experience.
