Parents of the female:

G: AA(A0) (mother) x B0 (father)

F1: A0 (female)


G: 00 (male) x A0 (female)

F1: A0, 00 (children)

50%:50%

The chances of having a specific blood type will be the same with every kid and will not depend on its ordinal number

So it will be 50% for the first child to have type A blood

And 50% chance for their third child to have type O blood
