    I recently acquired 4 penedesencas, 2 roos and 2 hens. Is this breed as rare as the Internet claims?

    Penedesencas are pretty uncommon, but I'm not sure that I would label them as rare. Some of the larger hatcheries including Meyer and Purely Poultry sell them. You should get some beautiful chocolate eggs from the two hens. In my personal opinion, they are the prettiest eggs in the chicken world. :eek:)
