    Hi everyone!

    I just love chickens with brown eyes, I find them so endearing and not so beady haha!
    I know Orpingtons can have brown eyes, are there any other breeds?

    (I don't mean "black" eyes like silkies)

    Thank you :)

    Ohhh the pictures I've seen of RIRs and Black Sex Links seem to have a yellow coloured eye?

    I recently lost my Orpington, she was the only girl I've ever had who had brown eyes, I haven't been able to find another breed.

    This is a picture of my lovely girl with beautiful brown eyes.

    Sorry I've changed the photo, I didn't realise how dark the photo was, making her eyes look black - but they aren't.
    I have a Silkie cross who's eyes are black - my Orp's were much lighter in colour, clearly brown and not black. I just loved them and thought they were so beautiful and would love more chickens with brown eyes in the future :)
