    This is my "olive egger" named Black Bubby. Anywho , she has the prettiest eye color and I want to know more about it genetically. None of her daughters have had it, but her mother did (RIP) Mom was an EE and dad was a BC Maran. The color doesn't translate well through a photo but it is actually a sea foam green color. I'd like to try and have more birds with this eye color.

    Some of my birds had eyes that were green or greenish, but as they've matured the color has been changing to more of a brown.
