    Yeah I meant in the sense the OP mentioned she already red headed kids - so either or both of them are carriers. As opposed to not knowing if either or both are carriers.

    Also depends if op and her dh are redheads or not?

    If they are both rangas, then they both have the double recessive alleles of the gene, so 100% of their children will be rang...

    But i dont think hair genetics is a simple single gene heriditory pattern... I think.more than one gene controls hair colour? Hence why you get strawberry blondes vs flaming red?

    If both parents redheads = all your kids will be redheads

    If one redhead, one not = 1/2 chance.

    If both not redheads = 1/4 chance


    I could explain the science behind it if anyones interested. but those are the stats (I used to study biomedical science, genetics was included).

    Supertrooper, you're correct, more than one gene controls hair colour, but there's only one gene for the "red" pigment - then there's other genes that control the amount of pigment, which is how you end up with dark red or strawberry blonde or whatever.

    In that case.. Assuming simple single gene inheritance... DH is red so he has rr, two recessive genes.. Lets say you have one recessive gene.. So Rr...

    Rr x rr means you can have Rr, Rr, rr and rr as possible children combos, so 50% chance of rang offspring
