That's really neat, but these things never take everything into account.

For instance, my 2 blue-eyed parents have 2 blue-eyed DD's and 1 w/ hazel eyes. This is supposedly impossible.

But if you look closely, my eyes and my mother's eye both have a ring around the outer edge. This ring is hazel, and it is the color of my sister's eyes.

This calculator also does not take hazel into account at all. I'm sure it'll work for most people, but our genes are more complicated than this.

Thanks for the link!

Yes, it is cool, but what do you do when dh has hazel eyes??? They are sort of green. It says my children should have 72% likelihood of having brown eyes, but they both have blue eyes.

Yeah, I have hazel eyes too so I don't think it works for me. DH has brown eyes and we have one blue eyes (DS1), and 2 brown eyes (DD and DS2)
