Anyone care to explain the color or show me a pic?
Nobody has any pics? I couldn't find ONE pic when I googled OR when I searched this forum...
Sorry, no pics here. The "pearl" eye from what I've seen is a whiteish/greyish coloring.

Ha! Found one for you!
yellow/green to very light yellow. No orange or red showing. Also called "Daw" eyed in some circles, as it is similar to the jackdaw's eye color. It is recessive, and hard to get back if lost in a line.
Here is a pic of one of my birds for you.
A good pearl eye in one of my Tuzo hens. Almost white.
Thanks so much everyone!!!
Any advice on breeding for it? Do chicks show it, or do you have to wait until later? Are there any traits linked to it?
Quote:As stated above, it's recessive. If you cross pearl with pearl, you will get all pearl. If you cross pearl with red, you will get all red. If your birds are asil, and they have red eyes, possibly the red is masking pearl, and, if you cross your birds, some chicks may have pearl eyes. I don't know if it shows in the chicks or not. Sorry.
