Blue Trout, Apricot & Brown Trout

 The following information is for genetic research only, these birds are not owned by K&S Waterfowl Farm but by friends and fellow waterfowl breeders. We are no longer breeding Trout patterned birds but love the color pattern and find it very interesting from a breeding starting point.
 
After the previous post, I was doing more research and came across some other interesting birds, all in the same "trout" series, but variations on the same.
 
Blue Trout is the same as regular Trout with the addition of one (heterozygous) Blue gene, making them 'BLUE Trout'

Male: M+M+ lili e+e+ Blbl+ C+C+ B+B+ r+r+ D+D+ Bu+Bu+
Female: M+M+ lili e+e+ Blbl+ C+C+ B+B+ r+r+ D+- Bu+-

Apricot is the same as regular Trout with the addition of two (homozygous) Blue genes, making them 'SPLASH Trout'

Male: M+M+ lili e+e+ BlBl C+C+ B+B+ r+r+ D+D+ Bu+Bu+
Female: M+M+ lili e+e+ BlBl C+C+ B+B+ r+r+ D+- Bu+-

Then these I ran across just looking for pictures to better explain some things. These birds are owned by Keystone Waterfowl Farm and are Brown Trout. Without seeing them in person I think they are regular Trout with the Brown dilution gene added in making them brown where they would be black. (Like a Gold Welsh Harlequin.)

Male: M+M+ lili e+e+ bl+bl+ C+C+ B+B+ r+r+ dd Bu+Bu
Female: M+M+ lili e+e+ bl+bl+ C+C+ B+B+ r+r+ d- Bu+-

(I think these are the correct genotypes for them.)
