    Blue eyes are common amongst huskies and are a classic example of Heterochromia. Around 5 out of 10 huskies will have two blue eyes. In fact, all newborn huskies start life with blue eyes, and later change if destined to.

Bi-Eyed huskies have one blue eye and one brown eye. Bi-Eyed huskies are slightly rarer than huskies with two blue eyes.

Parti-colored eyes

This is the rarest eye color variation and it’s called parti-colored. Only about 5% of the husky.

Brown eyed

  Brown eyes are usually as common as blue eyes, around 4 out of 10 huskies will have two brown eyes. There can be many different shades and tones of brown.

   Such an amazing phenomenon is called heterochromia, more commonly referred to as bi-colored or bi-eyed. . Heterochromia is the result of an excess or deficiency of melanin - the pigment responsible for the color of the iris of the eyes and does not affect the health of the animal. Other Huskies have mixed colors within each eye: partly blue and partly brown, and this is commonly known as parti-colored. This is normal and is just one of the fascinating and interesting facts about Siberian Huskies.
