VERY interesting read, thank you. Inheritance of eye color is what I am looking for information on. I have some Black Araucana's. Some have a dark, brown eye, some have bay color. The black variety should have brown. I'd like to know what is known about the genetics for breeding. Including any genes that may be inhibiting the color or enhancing, or links to leg color...whatever. Is eye color a dominant? recessive?

Sex-linked brown eye br mutation is sex-linked recessive.

MacArthur 1933 paper, test breeds for br dark eye /light eye etc. Many different crosses indicates a sex-linked recessive mutation br: http://www.esp.org/foundations/genetics/classical/holdings/Genetics/Genetics-1933-18-3-210.pdf
