I have been wondering about this and I figure it fits in with the genetics part of this forum. My grandmother got some chickens a few months ago and I noticed that they all have solid black eyes. I found it odd because chickens of that type ordinarily have orange eyes. The chickens she got are just pet quality and did not come from a reliable breeder. What do the black eyes mean? Are the chickens imbred or just poor quality or something else? Thanks in advance for any input.
