Comment:

The pied colour variety is very variable. Maybe it is the result of a multiple mutation factor. It can cause a total reduction of the eumelanin in specific areas, feather field, feather or part of a feather. It can give a loss of the eumelanin in nails, legs and other horny parts too. The eyes are dark.
The best combination for this recessive pied is:
cock 1 x hen 1, al the young will be pied.
The next best combination is cock 1 x hen 2 or cock 2 x hen 1. The results are the same. Cocks and hens, pied, and split for pied cocks and hens.
The combination cock 3 x hen 1 and cock 1 x hen 3 is good for bringing in fresh blood. The offspring is split for this factor.

Abbreviations:

(p) = pied mutation factor
( /p) = split for the pied mutation factor
(-) = no mutation factor.

Colour:

dark yellow, results of the best combination
bright yellow, next best.
