    They are quite rare, yes. Yard full 'o Rocks has some from good breeder stock out of Canada that are outstanding. He started with some from Dunlap hatchery that were the worst mixed breed mess and became determined to have the real deal.

    Yay, they are so cute!
    I just bought six Columbian Rocks and four Barred Rocks from a local here in Yorktown, Virginia. I hadn't heard of Columbian Rocks and when I read they were rare, I questioned whether the gentleman really knew what he was selling. But after seeing their wing feathers coming in and comparing with online pics, I think I may have the real deal...guess I won't know for a few more weeks though (they are only 10 days old now). Crossing fingers...
