    So in the search of trying to figure out if IO's kids were sired by Nash prior to getting DNA verification, I'm looking at their eyes. The doe's eyes are very light. Blue with brown around them. I'm not sure if it's just because they're still young though. I did not find many pictures (like 2) and I'm not seeing marbling? Just want to see more pictures and I'll post the kids' eye pics.
     
  2. I will see if I have photos of any of mine with marbled looking eyes. The eye color can change some also as they get older.
    If you will be registering the kids eye color is not a way to determine parentage.
    The DNA testing I have seen is best priced when done thru ADGA for $30 per goat; that includes parents.
     

  3. Just looked thru my photos and can't find any good photos of the kids I have had that were born with marbled looking eyes. I do see from my notes that those kids generally ended up with blue or light tan eyes not brown.

    Oh okay, I did read that if they have marbled eyes that the blue eye gene was involved and he's the only goat on the property with blue eyes. I still plan to do the DNA test regardless.
     
  5. I had twins born from 2 brown eyed parents one had brown the other marbled eyes. As she grew the eyes turned a pretty tan color and lost the blueness. I wonder how common marbling is and if there is a link to its occurrence.
