    I have brown eyes with recessive  blue gene from my Grandfather who had blue eyes but none of my children have blue eyes one is amber one is brown and one is green Two of my children's fathers have blue eyes and the other is brown eyed My oldest child has amber with a triangle of brown in one eye Hows that for a mixture

    In what species?  Humans?  Yes, a human blue-eyed child can come from mixed color parents because of the six alleles that determine eye color, the brown (dominant) allele could be heterozygous for blue.  Therefore the brown-eyed parent has a 50/50 chance of passing on brown or blue eye color.

    Absolutely.  Even two brown eyed parents can.

    Yes, easily. The dad would have to be heterozygous. I had a student with brown eyes whose parents were both blue-eyed. I had to explain to the class that eye color isn't as simple as it is portrayed in beginning genetics courses.

    The only way to present blue eyes is to inherit two copies of the blue-eyed gene. However, brown-eyed parents can pass a recessive blue-eyed gene. Therefore, two brown-eyed partners can birth a blue-eyed baby. ... Brown eyes + blue eyes = 50% chance of blue eyes, but only if the brown-eyed parent carries a blue-eyed gene
