    When I got my 4 month old silkie rooster I noticed his eyes were a blue or grey color. It's been about a month and he's still like this. Could he have Marek's disease or could it just be a mutation

    It could just be a mutation. Marek's doesn't just affect eye color, it affects the shape of the eye, and the size of the pupils. If he can still see, and his eyes look normal otherwise, he should be fine.
