    Also with the Splash Red chicks that you would get, their whitish coloring will probably be a bit more "splashy" than the pure Red Pyles that Chris posted. The pure Red Pyles are diluted with Dominant White not Andalusian Blue, and they wont breed the same as the Splash Reds either, but they will be pretty close in color to the ones Chris posted, just dont get the two confused if you end up getting any pure Red Pyles later on.
