Anyone have red lettuce seeds?

I've been growing lettuce for years but this year none of the red varieties popped up. It could be because I sowed them on an open unprotected part of the garden, perhaps birds, slugs, or rodents got to them. The green ones are doing well since they are in a big caged hothouse frame we built this year.
Stupid me, I used up every seed of all my reds, the oak leaf, butter & romaine.
Went to Lowe's today but they only have lettuce mixes, and I don't need green ones.
Anybody have any reds, I'll take any variety. SASE or trade I have Little Gem, Okayama Salad or Sunny Lettuce (it's sort of Romaine-y, popular in Japan) or komatsuna Old Tokyo. Besides tons of other seeds from too much gardening 🙄

@peebee I have some. I wont be able to tell you what until the morning. Trying to encourage the three year old to sleep and not wake up the baby at the moment and since I have been up since 2.45am, I will pass out when he crashes.

@Julianna I also had a 3 yr old & a baby many years ago. My condolences as you will hardly have a good night's rest for a while. But have heart, in a couple of years you will 🙂

@Tormato those sound great in fact Outregeous was one of the ones I lost. And I was just online looking specifically for a red butter. I used to have Yugoslavian Red & Merveille de 4 Saisons. Whatever comes close, I love trying new ones too.
Thank you both for looking.

Ahhh yes! I know one day sleep will happen. Honestly it is the feeding that is the worst. When I am no longer someone's breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks then I will feel so much better! Even with no sleep.

I have Lunix, Red Sails, and Rouge d'Hiver. The last two were packed for 2020.Lunix is 2021.
