Random agouti?

Please help me understand this...
These two mice had babies at our pet store (accidental litter - I wasn't there and customers are terrible at sexing mice, and my bosses weren't sure)

All but one baby were agouti. Why?

The top mouse looks as though it could possibly be agouti varigated? Or it could be splashed since that is also not uncommon in the US/Canada. The bottom pic looks like an RY (recessive yellow), which again is only in the US/Canada. If so that would explain the agouti. Or a wild mouse could have gotten in with the doe :lol:
