He must be a pretty bad teacher not to have heard about recessive genes.

You must be a pretty bad anon if you don't know that blue eyes are the recessive genes.

As a bonus, green eyes aren't really a separate gene, either. They are considered a mutated coloring of a 'base' color (I.E brown or blue) caused by one of the other genes that interact with eye color. Green eyed people pass on the mutated secondary genes As well as the 'base' gene for the eyes.

Genetics are fascinating.

Blue eyes ARE the recessive gene. Brown is most dominant, followed by blue, and finally green. Then there are shades in between them. Two blue eye'd people can't have a brown eye'd baby because they display the recessive trait, although they could have a green eyed baby.

Eyes are polygenic, so there are variations and shades, but having a single copy of the brown eye 'gene' will darken the eyes to amber/brown/hazel and out of the blue/grey/green spectrum.

It's still technically possible if the child had a spontaneous mutation but the chances are very low

While spontaneous mutations happen they don't frequently mimic the 'original'. A spontaneous mutation would be closer to heterochromia then anything else, but even heterochromia needs a copy of both genes. One is just defective.

To get a normal brown eyed child from two blue eyed parents is statistically impossible genetically. Phenotypically it may happen but not without other factors being involved and it being astronomically rare. It'd be better to assume adoption... or milk man. If you see hoofprints in New York think horse not zebra and all.

No ****. My thoughts exactly.
