    They are a harder breed to come by - are you open to hatchery stock or looking for breeder stock?

    Ideal, sandhill preservation and I believe efowl have them. Sandhill does SR only but i have heard the overall quality of birds is better

    Are you on FB? There is actually a page on FB dedicated to Barred Hollands, which might be a good way to network and find folks that have the birds and are willing to sell in smaller quantities, and may even be fairly close to you....the page owner is in Louisiana and is also listed here http://www.poultryshowcentral.com/la-barred-holland.html

    Duane Urch from Urch Turnlund Poultry in Owatonna MN has them on his list of breeds. Just so you know, he is an old man and has been a breeder since 1957. No website. Best contacted by phone. Info and number easy to find with a quick Google search. He has lovely birds and breeds to standard.
