Anyone else keep Derbyshire Red Caps?
If not, why not? they are "vulnerable" on the RBST register and absolutely gorgeous... look!

I hatched 3 last year but only one survived she is lovely and lives with my old cockeral that has to find a new home so she may have to go with him as she is much smaller than any of my other girls
