    I was sitting here thinking about chickens like I always do and I got to thinking of new colors and such. Then I some how ended up thinking about red pyle and how it is basically BBR with dominant white. Then I was thinking what about barred pyle? If I crossed a red pyle with crele wouldnt it basically produce white birds with red and white barred hackle, saddle, and wing bar?

    Would I have to use a crele cock on pyle hens because of the sexlinked barring? Once I got the F1 would they breed true?
