How might be possible for you to show a trait when neither of your parents show the trait?

Because some traits, such as blue eyes, are recessive. For each trait you get a pair of genes, one from each parent and you only get the recessive trait if you get a copy of that gene from both parents. If you have one dominant, eg brown eye, gene you get that. So say your parents both have brown ( Full Answer )

Can a child be born with sickle cell and parents don't have traits?
