    I've had several redcaps I got from Murry McMurry and all but one had a nice fat comb and she is a runt. I had two runts and 4 good sized girls out of the 6 I got. I love their temperament, I find them to be a challenge in a good way. I don't think they're for everyone, but I hope to see more people raising them. Mine are very wary, very smart, but friendly and love to be cuddled in my lap. I would like to get a few more females, but I'm not interested in buying a straight run from Sandhill, nor am I going to get them from MM as I don't think they have quality birds and I don't want 25+ chicks.

    Does anyone know someone or does anyone sell in the west? I am in western WA state.
