    So DE may have double recessive too.. Ie rr... But another gene masking it to make her more brown-red? Ie 100% chance of rang children... Either way id say your likely to have a rang... Its just how bright a red it will be that is in question? :P

    Basic genetics, but mainly depends on if your partner has strong red head genes and if you're carrying red head genes or not.

    For example if you're husband was a read head from a read head family (both his parents) he would be considered RR. And since you've already had kids with red hair there's a very high chance you're carrying the red hair gene too.
    So I'd say, guessing only:
    O=other colour
    R=red
    You're combinations would be:
    OR x RR =
    2 in 4 chances of red head child
    2 in 4 chances of other colour child carrying red gene

    My niece who is 15 weeks old tomorrow has brown hair (the baby kind of colour iykwim) with reddish eyebrows (though they're still brown)
    Mum has red hair, and dad has a red recessive.

    Does she still have a chance of going red, or would she be red right now (if she were going to be a ginger ninja)?

    I'm loving this thread! My sister is a red head and growing up I picked on her heaps. The always told me that I would have red headed kids just to remind me how horrible I was. I'm still TTC my first so not sure about it yet but my chances are very high. My dad is also a red head, so was his sister. My mums side has her dad and sister as red heads aswell. My DF's mum is also a red head!! Lol

    My mil has two red haired siblings and yet has brown hair

    MOTH has very fair hair but a red beard, his eldest brother is the same and his middle brother has brown hair and brown eyes

    I have no red hair and no history of red hair in my family, but both my kids are red heads - DS has strawberry blond and green/changeable eyes, DD has chestnut hair and dark brown eyes

    I must obviously carry a recessive gene.
