Like pulling hen’s teeth

That’s got to be the greatest mixed metaphor ever, a combination of “rare as hen’s teeth” and “like pulling teeth.”

It’s kind of humorous, but I suppose it still could still be descriptive: not only is a task difficult, but it’s difficulty is now compounded by scarcity.

The only direct application I can think of would be for sasquatch wrestling, for not only must you wrestle the beast, you must first locate one.
