Can a Brown Eyed Man Father a Blue Eyed Child?


It is possible for brown eyed man to father a blue eyed child. Eye colour is not the simple decision between the brown and blue versions of a single gene. There are many genes involved and eye colour ranges from brown to hazel to green to blue. Brown eye genes dominate over green eye genes and also dominate over blue eye genes. However, because many genes are required to make each of the black and yellow pigments, there is a way called genetic compensation to get brown or green eyes from blue-eyed parents.
