           Great egg producers

- Louise, 31 August 2013

Would agree with previous reviewer that these birds are not suitable for keeping in a small run. Ours are in a large netted enclosure however in a field and seem perfectly happy, so completely free-range not essential. Absolutely brillant egg producers - far better than the light sussex, warrens and cream legbars we also have. Intelligent birds who are extremely attractive to look at and a rare breed.


           Good free range bird

- Tony, 18 February 2012

Derbyshire red caps are first rate free range birds, very hardy, good layers and good to look at. The eggs are white medium in size and with a rich flavour. They prefer to range freely not confined to a small space so not the best breed for a garden situation. So to sum up not a breed for owners who have limited space but an ideal breed.for people with room to spare.
