Isn't it 1/4? I remember seeing a graphic about this at a conference of the chances a sibling will be a match. That number also matches with your current numbers (20% - 25%)

For two beta thal carriers, yes there is a 25% chance that a child would be a major. Real life experience can vary greatly, as life does not give a damn about the odds, hence families with 3 children who are all thal major.
