    Ive been looking around trying to find the difference between the color trout and the color grey in runner ducks. Is there a differrnce at all or are they just different names for the same color?

    The " grey" color is the typical mallard color. The "trout" color is a lighter more spotted color. Ill try to find some old pics of my trout runners so you can see the difference.

    Ive seen them both grouped into the same color some places. The Drakes must look similar and ducks must have some differences that I cant see in the few pics I can find.
