    I'm not sure if my dove is albino or white. She has white feathers but her eyes are pink with a red iris. I know that she sounds like an albino, but her under tail bar is a very light brown. I'm not sure what she is, if anyone knows what she is, that would be great :)

    Could you post a pic, I would be interested to see. Is it possible she is less than 2 months old? The white (but not albino) baby my doves raised had red eyes (pupils) until she was 2 months old when they turned black.

    @Lozuufy these are the best pictures I could get of her. I'm not sure how old she is, but she does lay eggs every now and then.

    Wow she looks really cool! I know with coturnix quail there is a "pink eyed dilute" color mutation, maybe there is one with doves also.
