---I remember something published years ago on 'dark' nandays. Maybe the AFA magazine? Anyways, diet was one of the theories put forward on why the very occassional import should have dark eyerings. Stress was another theory, as was exposure to UV. Then there was the idea the dark eyering was a rare but normal color variation. There was even the suggestion dark nandays were a distinct subspecies, a subspecies with small numbers limited to a specific area.
