Both nice eyes but the hen are particularly strong. They are both violets. The inner circle of the hen is very nice. Wide and well serrated with a good area of dark shading. The cocks inner circle isn’t quite so wide but still serrated around the outer edge. The hens circle of colouration is violet with a lot of graining in it almost looking like a lot of diamonds. Again the cocks circle of colouration is violet but not so grainy but still has some. In both eyes the circle of colouration can be seen going right out to the outside of the eye. The iris is a pale pink in both, it is fuller in the cock and not quite so mountainous but both have plenty of room in them. 

The hen I think will make a very good breeder and I think the cock should compliment her. 

Hope do well George.

I have the same opinion as Andy, the hen eye looks a lot stronger for breeding.Some nice mountains in her eye, look forward to here how they breed for you George.

Both nice eyes George. 

Can't add much to what Andy and Rich have already said, I also agree that the hen has the stronger eye. There is space in the hens eye so it should go well with the slightly duller eye of the cock bird, for me the hens eye is certainly full of distance. 

Good luck with them mate.

They look like the Old Harisons pigeons ,I’d call them recessive violet ,

@killer I agree. The recessive violet is nearer to white, whilst the dominant violet is more blue.

With the Domiment Violet eye I’m looking for the Burgandy colour in the Iris ,with a fog like colour coming from with in the sign , in saying that the recessive violet seems to be more of a dural purpose pigeon , which  race better ,the old Harrison family which was imported out here from over there in 1912 were full of that colour ,with the black distance Laughing Out Loud sign coming through around the pupil ,
