Is the firstborn definitely getting the sick gene?
I wanted a confirmation that is, if the disease does not skip generations, does it mean that the firstborn certainly receives the gene while the others probably will (50%)?
What is the probability of the disease manifesting itself?
Best regards and thanks

Hello, this means that each child has a 50% risk of receiving the mutation. It has nothing to do with being firstborn.
