Hi there, How common certain eye-colours are depends upon where you live.  
Where I live, in the North of Scotland, Blue is more common than brown and 
brown is more common than green.  However, if you were to go to India or 
Africa then brown would be the most common colour.  

I have included a couple of web pages for you to have a look at.  The one 
below gives an explanation of how eye colour is inherited

and the other one is an interactive eye-colour game for you to play

Bye now,
