':Red and orange pigments, as my understanding goes, are different but are made by the same kind of cell. The mutation in Kenyans disables them both. People say both axanthic and anery in reference to the same mutation. There's only one black and white Kenyan (I call it the 'holstein phase'. Moo!)'

Axanthic - no yellow (xanthin)
Anerythristic - no red (erythrin)

-but isn't yellow,well and red, color pigments needing for brown coloration? like in the more brown colored black and whites? or am I just trying to make this more complicated than it actually is?
