    Actually, I believe you're right. Both blue eyes and red hair are recessive and both parents need to have the gene for it, so.... My guess... You're right....

    I do so quite apologize for the necro bump, but I noticed that there was an inaccuracy here on this "answered" question. While ye be right that individually the most recessive colors for hair and eyes are red and blue respectively, the rarest combination to occur, including skin tone and not qualifying albinos who have no pigmentation whatsoever, is this: fair skin, brunette hair, and blue eyes. I call this condition Snow White Syndrome as she to, according to the story, was the exact same way. This is such a recessive genetic abnormality that the trait can be hidden by other recessive genetic traits. It can even show up randomly in a child born to blood lines that haven't had a similar instance of this in generations.

    JSmith, please refrain from necro-ing threads, the old participants will not see the new posts, due to a software migration a year or two back.
