    I am searching high and low for Derbyshire Redcap chicks or hatching eggs. I haven't been able to find any hatcheries that have them and would love to buy from someone on BYC who is currently raising them.

    Thanks!

    Deb, the only hatcheries I have found that carry them are Murray McMurray and Sandhill Preservation. I'm hoping to start a flock myself. I have a 4 week old pullet from McMurray right now.

    Oh Lucky you!

    Did it come as your rare chick?

    I contacted them and they are sold out of them until next year. (They don't even hatch them they contract them.)

    I will have to look at Sandhill Preservation.

    Thanks!

    (Keep me in mind if you get your flock started before me!)
