12 days old. Red eyes?

Hi there. My baby cockatiel hatched on 5th December. When the eyes opened 10 days later they looked red. Now at day 17 the eyes look dark. Is this normal or even possible?

Thanks,
Evelyn.

This is usually normal, depending on the color of the ?tiel. But you should have your bird looked at by an avian veterinarian to be sure there are no problems.

I've never seen a baby cockatiel but my cockatiel has had dark eyes since i got her at the age of three months.
