    Hi everyone!
    I'm a breeder of Derbyshire Redcaps from the UK and was wondering if anyone on here was interested in the breed?
    I show my birds and will upload some pictures later showing the main points of the standards in the UK!

    If anyone is interested in new British blood my birds are laying well at the moment and I ship anywhere inside the EU and also in America! These are genuine show winning birds with utility qualities, the best you can get to the UK standard - as I said, pics to follow!

    Thanks:jumpy

    Two cockerel head shots. Would love to hear your thoughts and which you prefer.

    This is the cockerel in the top head shot photo. His wing shows a clear black set of primaries and a slightly peppered red - black set of secondaries.

    This is one of my breeding hens - she has sat unbeaten in all her classes in the last two years!
    Showing the distinctive redcap head, one of the best head "types" you can get for the breed, with fine textured red skin and a large comb. She shows a full black tail, which is very important for the breed. Also, her wing is near perfect. With the correct markings. This bird is with the cockerel above in the breeding pen with hatching eggs available to buy in the EU, USA and Australia!

    I have never seen these birds other than in pictures but find them to be very attractive.
