Silver Lakenvelder Chicks


The Silver Lakenvelder Chickens were developed in Germany in the early 1800s. Lakenvelder translates to "white spread over a black field" which is perfectly descriptive of their feather colors. Males and females have the same coloring--a sharp color contrast of white body and black hackle and tail. Lakenvelders are a graceful and beautiful addition to any flock.

Lakenvelders are compact birds that have been primarily bred for white egg production. You can expect 3-4 eggs per week from these ladies. Lakenvelder's are active and somewhat flighty and love to free-range.
