    What a great shot [​IMG] Young pullets and cockerels always have blue eyes in my flocks. As they get a little older their eyes turn the normal brownish grey, no matter the color of the Guinea, light or dark.

    I had to go out and check a bunch of my light colored birds vs dark colored birds of different ages in my keeper coop, they will hop up on top of the built in brooder and get real close and talk to me face to face, lol. All the 18-20 wk old birds in my flocks still have blue eyes, (light and dark birds), but the birds over 6 months are all getting greyer/darker colored eyes now. I double checked my older, fully mature birds too just to see if any have blue eyes... none do, not even my pure Whites. Hard to say if your bird's eyes will stay blue or not. That would be cool if they do tho... might be developing something new to the world of Guinea Fowl!

    Quote:LOL come onnnnn... it grows on you eventually, especially when they cock their heads sideways and give you the curious dog look, lol. And you gotta love those pretty eyelashes! I agree Guinea heads aren't the prettiest, but Turkey heads are way worse IMO lol.
