Hey there,

Do dove colored mice usually have pink eyes or black eyes? Here https://www.afrma.org/miceself.htm they are listed to have black, but here http://zenmousery.com.au/genetics/ are listed to have pink.

Thanks

Depends on where you live. Dove is the US is different than Dove in other countries.

Dove in the US is a mix of blue and chocolate with dark eyes. Other countries call this Lilac.

Lilac in the US is a blue mouse with pink eyes. The pink eye gene causes the blue to be a more diluted/lighter color than standard. Other countries call this Dove.

Summarize
US Dove = UK Lilac = dark eyes
UK Dove = US Lilac = pink eyes
Idk why. Don't Know
