    Are there any breeds of Red Pyle colored chickens that come in standard size and preferably a heavy breed?

    Has anybody got any experience cross breeding with a red pyle breed.

    Old English & Modern games are the only breed I know of in LF. But if you have the space choose a breed and start a project to get what you want. Search Red Pyle, there are people on this board working on it.

    LF=Large fowl.
    Some others that might get ya:
    SLW: silver laced wyandotte, used a lot. Also GLW, gold laced
    RC, SC, VC, PC: rose comb, single comb, v-comb, pea comb.
    ST, S STD: all stand for "standard" or large fowl
    B, BNTM, BTM: bantam
    OEG(B): old english game (bantam)

    Almost all game breeds have red pyle, notably Yokohama and the breeds that herechickchick mentioned. I have a friend who's doing really well with his Red Pyle Modern Games.

    Quote:Thanks. I had all of the others down.... Just couldn't wrap my head around the LF today. Too obvious for me, I was over thinking it.

    I am going to see if I can't find a young Standard size Red Pyle Old English Game Cockerel to buy before Christmas. I can't wait to get started on a breeding project. Need to do a bit more studying first.
