You would get 50% pieds and the rest would be split pied. If you breed her to another pied you will get all pieds. As for heavy pied and light pied I can't help. I never got into breeding for patterns.

Yes you will need to get a pied male, the heavier pied he is the better the chances of you getting heavy pied chicks are. If you get split pied or light pied male the chances of a heavy pied is small, not impossible but unlikely

It's really hard to breed for pattern. If your hen is light pied, it will be difficult to get heavy pied babies no matter what the male is carrying.
