Is it true or false?

Recommended Posts

Since blonde hair and blue eyes result from 2 recessive genes, Is it correct to assume that a blonde hair/blue eyed mother and father can only produce blonde hair/blue eyed children? Since they both have 2 recessive genes to offer for each trait , Wouldnt all of their offspring all have the 2 recessive genes, Thereby all being blonde hair and blue eyed?

although i'm not sure about eyes, I'm sure that hair color follows the rule of polygenic inheritance. In that there is more than one allele that controls the hair color of the offspring. (someone verify?)
