Are green eyes rare with red hair?

I have green eyes and I am a red head. every red haired person I meet usually has brown eyes. I was just wondering if it was rare?

I was under the impression that green eyes and red hair go hand-in-hand, but maybe I'm wrong.

I would say so because all the red heads I met had brown eyes

well it might be rare since both red hair and green eyes are recessive traits... my sister is a redhead but she has blue eyes. :)

Actually, in my experience, brown-eyed redheads are a sight to see. They are rare. I do like green eyes on a redhead better than brown, though. You are still really special, though! And you look very pretty in your profile picture :)

Really? My friend has blue...
I'd say that brown is the most common but green and blue aren't UNcommon, just not quite as prominent. Plus red hair and green eyes are both recessive genes.

No, its not rare. Every redhead that I know has either green eyes or a really light blue/green eyes.

Like someone said above, green eyes is a recessive trait, so they would be more rare in every color of hair match.

No, I feel like green eyes would be more common with red heads.

I have both red hair and green eyes. Red hair occurs naturally on approximately 1–2% of the human population. It occurs more frequently (2–6%) in people of northern or western European ancestry, and less frequently in other populations. Red hair appears in people with two copies of a recessive gene on chromosome 16 which causes a mutation in the MC1R protein. This combination is rare since both red hair and green eyes are recessive traits. Green eyes occurs Naturally in the same 1-2% of the human population also. I consider myself quite unique and so should you.
