Are all babies born with blue eyes? I don't think they are, but my friend said he was told that they were, so I wanted to find out whether they were or not, thanks

Depending on genetic background, it seems baby's can have blue, gray, and even brown eye color at birth. http://vision.about.com/od/childrenvision/f/eyecolorchange.htm [Broken]

Not all babies, but many babies seem to be born with slate blue colored eyes that turn color with in a few months after birth. Melanin,a protein and pigment molecule that colors eyes, hasn't been deposited in the irises eyes. Other animals are born with blue eyes too, baby pigs have blue eyes.
