As long as they are not blind, eye color means nothing.

A husky has different eye colors and it doesn't make it better than the rest.

Only thing I can think of that makes it special is if a white bird with red eyes. Then it is albino.

Some flyers "swear-by" eye sign/color"--But in my racing for 31 years I just breed the best to best and did O K.

Can they guarantee me to throw in a bird with that same eye color and expect to have the same result? Exactly.

The problem is that people too often unintentionally umbrella the experiences from their own loft to the rest of the world. In return we get these misleading theories and beliefs.

Why do you think we have the term "Theory" and are so careful to not cloud it over the term "Fact?"

I talk to these type of people before. No one have ever made me a solid promise that their "uneducated theories" would hold true if I put it to the test. It is funny how they swear on their mother's grave that it is true, yet when the conversation continues they begin to doubt themselves at the end.

I like that
Theory < FACT
Talking about being practical. But it was just a question, we all are learning in due process. Some rumors, theories and facts.

Eyesign is mostly to do with the lines in the eyes and the color of the small ring around the pupil, not the overall eye color as in pearl or yellow.

What is going on with your birds is called 'odd eye' and 'split eye' (some call them cracked eyes). Odd-eyed birds have a bull eye and a normal colored eye. Split eyes, which are partially colored and partially black, are generally associated with pied birds. Also, baldhead birds (like a lot of birmingham rollers), tend to be odd-eyed. The color of the eye has no importance unless you intend on showing them, in which they must then meet the standard.

First the dark eye that you are talking about is a BULL eye it is usually associated with white plumage on the head. It has nothing to do with the EYESIGN THEORY. It is caused when the embryo is devepoling in the egg. Pigment cells develop in the neural crest of the embryo.These cells, like sperm cells have the power of movement..Migration of these pigment cells is clearly a timed process and if these cells do not reach their destination the result is white feathers,and these white feathers seem to be related to the bull eye . Check out your birds and see if they have white feathers on their heads. I don't know what breed of birds that you have but I will bet they are high flyers or rollers with white heads. It does happen with race birds also. .GEORGE;)
