    Red Pyles were originally made by crossing Whites and BB Reds. You can do it this way and after several years of selective breeding you will end up with Pyles.
    A much simpler way to get Pyles is to just go buy some of the really good ones that are available for sale.

    Wow, that almost seems too easy..... So, I'm looking at a red pyle rooster, an Araucana. He's not perfect, has some white leakage in the hackles and red leakage in the breast. - What color hen (BBR?) should I put with him to clean that up?

    This guy has light colored legs, might be yellow, can't tell from the pics - is the leg color right for red pyle?

    Yes, I know this thread is as old as Methuselah....[​IMG]
