    I am doing a presentation tomorrow about chickens and we have had chickens with green, yellowish, and even an orange/copper look to their eyes.

    So I am curious, what color eyes do yours have? If you have any closeup pictures it'd be helpful too.

    Would you like to see?


    The adult's eyes are normally a coppery orange color, while the chicks eyes are blue, grey, or greenish. They're like humans, when they grow up, their eye color changes.
