    The ALBC has a list of endangered,critical,etc breeds. I am not sure where their info comes from as many on their list are readily available. Here are a few on my list of hard to find: Catalana,Crevecoeur,Dorkings,Hollands,LaFleche,Lamonas,Redcaps,Rhode Island White,Sultans, Rocks other than White or Barred.

    There's nothing I want that I can't find. You see, I'm in Ontario, I dare say the most poultry rich region in the hemisphere. We have everything. There are amazing rare breeds like Elisabeths, Shetlands, Showgirls, Sumatras, Seramas, Pure Red Junglefowl, Solid-color Marans, Chanteclers, Bessemers, Ridley Turkeys, Watermaels, Australian Spotted Ducks, a variety of Pheasants, Hamburgh Bantams, and Overbergs, and dozens of breeders are producing new breeds, like the Snyder, the Bessemer (chicken version), the Bow Lake, the Alderlsea, and the Runner Bantam. There are also new varieties, like Ginger-red Sebrights, Lilac Swedish, Tiger-Barred Turkens, and Blue Cream Appleyards. It's a great place to be poultrimen. You name it, we consider it run-of-the-mill!
