    it doesnt really seem too rare to me, I mean they're not popular like Rhode Island reds are in normal flocks...but many people are collecting them so it's becoming more and more common in some serious breeeder flocks.

    I would definitely do it. I don't know if they are considered rare or not, but they are Extremely popular and hard to get! A good investment.
