I already KNOW this is going to sound stupid, but I am just confused. According to a lot of what I have seen, my Gold Laced Wyandotte is considered a "very rare" color of Wyandotte and my Dominique is actually referred to as "critically endangered" in one place. Now, I went online and paid somewhere in the vicinity of $3 or so for each of these. That does not sound like anything "rare" to me. Does this mean, simply, I am one of the few people who even wanted one? It just really seems strange to me. They are what I assumed to be pretty common chickens and both are especially pretty so I assume a lot of people would want them? Just really curious.
