Eye color: Is genetically complex with a number of factors that determine the actual color appearance. However the brown gene is dominant and the blue gene is recessive.

Brown over blur: The inheritance of eye color is somewhat complex but when it comes to brown v. blue --- brown is dominant over blue. In your family, Mom and Dad probably have brown eyes but carry one gene for brown and one for blue. There is a 25% chance of a child in this mix with blur eyes. All other combinations will be brown.

Generally not: Brown eyes dominate over blue. While eye color inheritance is somewhat mixed, if the only colors in question are strongly blue and strongly brown, then brown dominates.

Could you tell me if my wife has blue eyes, and I have brown eyes, can our child still have blue eyes?
Possibly: The brown eye gene dominates over blue so all blue eyed people have 2 blue eye genes. Your wife will only pass the blue gene to her offspring. As a brown eyed male, you could have one blue and one brown or two brown genes. If you only have brown, your kids together should have brown eyes. If you have a blue and a brown, you could have a blue eyed kid. ...Read more
