Instruction how to find out the color of the eyes of a child

Step 1:

Consider the fact that eye color is inherited. This postulate has advanced Johann Mendel - the Austrian biologist and botanist who lived in the XIX century. According to his law, eye color is inherited as well as the color of hair: if the dominant genes are dark in color, the distinctive traits (phenotypes), encoded by them, take their superiority over the hallmarks of a lighter color.

Step 2:

Look at the color of his eyes and the color of the iris of the husband or wife. If you both have a dark eye color or brown, baby, sure, will be born with dark eyes. Accordingly, the children of parents who have light eyes, will also have a bright eye color.

Step 3:

If you and your spouse eye color is different, it determines the color of the iris of your child according to the theory of the dominant genes. For example, my mother - blue eyes, and his father - light green. Their child may have blue eyes with probability - 60% light green - 40%, as the blue color - dominant. The most frequent color of eyes on the ground is considered to be brown but rare - green.

Step 4:

Do not panic if at birth the color of eyes does not meet your expectations or does not coincide with the color of your eyes. The vast majority of children are born with blue-gray or blue-gray eyes. Approximately 6-7 months to become completely clear what will be the color of the eyes in the future. Those children who have dark skin at birth, are usually dark gray or brown eyes. Eye color is determined mostly parental genes, but even great-grandfather or great-grandmother can make unexpected contribution.
