    What breed are you wanting to do it in ?

    For true red pyle you need a BBRed ( Red Duckwing) colored bird and dilute it with Dom white. Leghorns would be an easy breed to do it with since I dont think there are many if any Red Pyle leghorns in the US and I'm supprised that someone here hasnt already made them, but crossing a Brown leghorn( which is Red Duckwing colored ) with a White leghorn ( who are generally Dominant White) and then a few more generations of crossing the white patterned offspring back to the pure Brown Leghorns should give some Red Pyle leghorns in a few generations.
