    Quote:Brown red x Blue would be your pass toward lemon blue
    Brown Red x "Grey" hens will be more brown red hens and golden males.
    BB Red x Blue first pass toward Blue red
    Bb red x "Grey" will be more BB Red females, and golden males

    Quote:Porcelain requires booth parents to carry the mottling gene, the lavender gene, among others. But to answer your question, no, it wouldnt be a possibility too very porcelain from those colors you listed. Red Pyle is made by replacing the black on a bb red with dominant white.

    Quote:That would be one way to go about it, but the hen would need to be dominant white, not recessive.

    Quote:Pocelian is a very complex color and you do not have what is needed to get there, it is also a very long process to develop.

    If you want Red Pyle, I assume LF you would be best served buying a RP male, and breeding to your BB Red hens, red Pyle is a Duckwing variety with Dom. white.
