    Hi

    I was curious, is it possible to rely on the color of the eye of the chicken to tell the gender. Like Ive notice, in 2 RIR roos, they have a greenish color in the eye. But with hens its brownish/orange. Or maybe Im confused with something else...

    Usually different color eyes in the same breed means they are different ages. Youngsters often have greenish eyes and later on, they have whatever adult eye color is proper for their breed.
