    Thanks for the confidence Tracy, but I think there are a lot more qualified people out there. Troy Vannoy is who I received my birds from. Mr. Bill Wulf would be another one to ask. Also Mr. Price (of Hipps & Price) is also an authority on Red Pyle.

    Personally my opinion is start with good birds from one of these guys and color will be the least of your problems compared to other varieties.....Now that I think about it, I would have to say that I believe a male line would present more problems as far as color goes than a female line.

    I forgot to mention I haven't even got any hatched off yet. The storms knocked my electricity out for 3 days. Lost some eggs but my family is healthy and we still have a house. So all is good here. Still prayin for all the people in and around OKC and Moore.

    Thanks Tracy but I take no credit in my Red Pyles. I am just the reproducer of what I received from Troy. He gave me some good birds to start with.
  • Crushed Red Pepper has worked in the past for me on most of my varieties of Old English, but has not worked very well on my Barnes females for some reason. I think the reason it promotes egg production is because it makes the birds drink more and the extra water intake is good for egg production. This is only a theory though.
  • same theory here

    Thanks raven.
  • Where do you put the chili pepper or crushed pepper. Do you just crush it up or mix it their water or feed?
