Trout Indian Runners WHO HAS THEM ??? - Page 4

post #31 of 32

You would not get gold or blue from a pure trout.  What drake do you plan to breed to her?  It will be the drake that determines anything other than a trout.

 

If you have blue trout x blue trout you would get trout, blue and saxony.

 

If you cross a wild grey drake then you would get the phenotype of wild mallard, but your ducklings would be recessive trout carriers.  You will only get gold if the drake, carries the brown sex linked gene.

This is Cinnamon. She her juvenile plumage is almost all in, except for the fuzz remnants.

I have three good drakes - one blue trout and two penciled runners.

 

At this point I have a few eggs of her with a blue trout drake.  That will start me having a group of trout runners (with some blue trouts thrown in) as soon as I get my incubator in the mail.  Not sure if I'm interested in breeding for Saxony, but that would remain an option.  I'd also like to try breeding her with a penciled runner drake to get the brown gene in there for gold trout.  I could simply breed out the runner markings to get gold (brown) trout. 

 

On the other hand... I could mix the trout with the runner markings (either in brown or in regular trout color).  This might take a few generations, but would presumably yield a duck with great head stripes paired with lots of runner white. This would, presumably, create a very striking non-standard duck. On the drake side of that same design, the M+ gene combined with the penciled runner genes would presumably give a penciled runner with a chestnut/burgundy colored chest fading into the regular brown before reaching the white band on the belly.  This would be a colorful drake with fully white under-wing (mallard as opposed to dusky).  That would again be non-standard but might be really pretty.  So I would have new colors of runner ducks -  pied trout and/or gold pied trout.  Just a dream at this point, but we'll see.
