Default Who's the daddy?

So I've ended up with a few (hundred) little ones, and I'm quite uncertain when it comes to their genetics. Could you guys help me sort this out?

The mother is a copper, at least that's what I was told. I've read contradicting info about eye color in coppers, but her eyes are black. This is her:

The eggs were white and the babies are very light in color, but they do have some pigment:

Do coppers look this light when young, or is something else happening here?

I have no info on the parents of any of them, but the two coppers are most likely siblings as they were the same size when I got them together.

Thanks for any help!
