The gene you need is called "stipper". That is the crucial gene for almond. You need to make sure it is a stipper/almond and not grizzle, not ashred/blue etc. You can post pictures here for clarification if you like.

This is a blue bar stipper without the other genes that make up "almond". Note, it is not a grizzle.

Stipper itself is a distinct gene, it cannot be created by combining other genes. It is like asking "what metals do I combine to create iron?" You cannot, as iron itself is an element.

You need to find a bird who has this gene, it cannot be created.

Ok, having so few hens makes it a little more tricky, I'd pair the recessive red to the kite and T-pattern, then take the best young from these pair to out to the stippers, and keep going until you combine all the required genes.

Pairing almond to kite is suitable, yes.
