Black Eyes Or Plum Eyes?

Recommended Posts

I'm not very good at recognising whether a budgie chick has black or plum coloured eyes, so maybe someone can help me. Does this chick (it was hatched yesterday) have black or plum eyes?

Pictures from today:

And the day it hatched:

Thanks in advance, replies soon would be great. Also, looking at the sticky thread on red, plum and black eyes, I notice this baby's eyes do look identical to the plum eyed chick's eyes..confirmation on that please?

if you can get a shot where the white balance is accurate ( eg: eggs look white) we will be able to tell :P

it is really hard with a photo to judge the eye colour they do look plumb though

you will know in few days however for sure its little eyes will open and if plum will look pink

i remember my first cinn chick

i thought were the **** did i get a albino from knowing their was no albino in the genetics of parents or theirs

the eyes are very dark when black though like a gold fish :P

The first chick might be Cinnamon but I'll try not to get my hopes up until it starts getting feathers. But the second chick hatched yesterday, and look at what I saw!!!! This is not black or plum eyes, this is red eyes, right? And seeing as neither of the parents are Albino then this baby is a girl! I sure hope that the dad is split Cinnamon also, that would make for some very pretty chicks..

Also, I'm just wondering, are you able to make Lacewings by not getting a Lacewing bird but breeding with Cinnamons and Albinos or is that not possible?
