    Good luck with it :) I'm not sure whether the white buttons usually seen have pink eyes - it's hard to tell in pictures. But yours certainly does look very albino.

    Oh cool :) it does look albino, lack of pigment in the beak, legs and feathers as well? Would like to see it again a bit older :D

    Here it is with a Bagpuss cuddly toy, as it's on its own, not sure if it can see properly, but other chicks don't seem to accept it. I will post pics as it grows.

    It's actually looking like a pink eyed dilute pearl now as it's getting creamy coloured feathers, not sure if it's male or female though. It's 3 weeks old now and in a cage on it's own as others won't take to it, but I handle it daily.
