Interesting, this shows the probably of a child’s eye color based on the eye color of its parents!
My dad has blue eyes, my mom has brown eyes, and my eyes are greener than green.
oh this is so wrong it pains me!!! this is literally so wrong my scientific mind can’t handle it!
listen up kids. while some of these events are LIKELY to occur, it does not occur every single time, eg. if both parents had brown eyes, there may be a 0% chance their children will have blue eyes because of their genetic makeup due to dominant/recessive genes.
take this photo for example:
let’s pretend the red bird represents brown eyes, and the blue bird represents blue eyes.
the big red A represents the dominant allele for brown eyes, while the little blue a represents the recessive allele for blue eyes. If these two were to have 4 children, they would all inherit 1 allele from their parent with brown eyes and one from the parent with blue. because brown eyes are dominant, they will always be expressed over the recessive blue eyes. Therefore, if parents, 1 with blue eyes and 1 with brown eyes (with no recessive trait) have children, NONE of their children will have blue eyes, but their children become carriers of the blue eyed gene, making it able for their children to have children with blue eyes if their partner also has the recessive trait for blue eyes.
so while some of these combinations of eye colour WILL result in the percentages shown above, it will not be the case 100% of the time.
