Hi, Dooley and Lotty, welcome to the forum! At 1.5 years of age, her eyes should already be a lighter gray than they were when she was a baby and, by two, her eyes should look yellow but the color continues to deepen a bit after that. They start their puberty at 2 or 2.5 years of age but they are not considered to be adults until the age when they start breeding which is from 4 to 7 (this mostly depends on the conditions the bird was raised in terms of diet, light schedule, handling, etc).
