Ancient theory on silver pied genetic ...
Existence of genes white eyes ... not sure!
They say ...
2 white genes so a lots of white eyes! In theory, this bird has two genes white eyes (one comes from the father and the other from the mother) it should be full of white eyes ... and it has NOTHING!

The silver pied gene exists! = a kind of pied gene + a color eraser.
Dark silver pied = two silver pied genes!
When we talk about silver pied there are automatically white eyes!
And in fact, it's like pied genetics!
Dark silver pied x White = 100% silver pied .... BINGO!
