I need help finding the name for a duck color, if it exists. Otherwise, I need help creating one.
I am starting a breeding program to create more of my duck (see picture below). But I am told she is a "faulted" trout. I cannot use the name "Faulted Trout." How could I get people to buy a "faulted" duck? And, more important, her color is beautiful! It is true, though, that it does not fit the standard for Trout ducks. So a new name is needed.
***So, is there already a name for this color? ***
As I breed more of my duck, I will select for even more white on the bottom part. I understand that a very similar type of breeding has been done in call ducks. In that case, Saxony color (Trout with double Blue genes) has been bred to have more white. The Saxony-with-more-white is called Butterscotch.
I have also seen a similar breeding of call ducks with a single blue gene (The "Blue-Trout-with-more-white are sometimes called "Blue Butterscotch."
However, this does not help me find a name, because Butterscotch Trout, to me, sounds just like the Saxony-with-more-white, since the name "Butterscotch" is associated with two Blue genes.
So, I need a name for "Trout-with-more-white", for my duck and for future ducks of that color. I may also breed a Brown Trout-with-more-white, too.
So I really need a name for that color...
I have thought of "Dark Butterscotch" to parallel the Dark Campbell. I don't really like "Brown Butterscotch" as the option for the brown version. Or would that be "Golden Butterscotch in the brown color? Or does "Golden" imply Blue genes as well as brown? I guess Dark Butterscotch and Golden Butterscotch are options?
