    Can other colored Muscovy ducks have blue eyes beside white ones?

    Out of 4 ducklings 3 of mine are blue eyed, but only 1 is all yellow, which will be all white.

    Interesting, of all my muscovies only my solid white ones have blue eyes.

    some of the pied ones can have blue eyes, generally though if they have colour the get darker eyes. i remember reading a post somewhere that had the eye colours for each feather colour, i'll try to get my brain to remember........................................

    All my white ducks have blue eyes, none of my other ducks have them.

    Here's one of the others that has blue eyes. There are 2 who have this coloring (one a tad darker than the other) and a white one. I understand whites have blue eyes, but don't get why these ones have blue.
