Lakenvelder

$4.25

The Lakenvelder is a beautiful, dual purpose bird and a great show bird.  You can expect each hen to lay around 3 medium-sized cream eggs each week.  The Lakenvelder has delicious, white meat, albeit, minimal in quantity  Lakenvelders are shy with humans and not aggressive with other chickens.  Many owners report that they can be flighty, but that they bear confinement well.  They are very active and alert birds that are great foragers and free-range chickens.  Their alertness gives them a better chance at avoiding prey and the expert foraging abilities make them a bit easier on the chicken feed.  The Lakenvelder was first imported to the US around 1900, but were not included in the American Poultry Association’s Standard of Perfection until 1939.  Their striking coloring helped them become popular exhibition birds at that time.  Lakenvelder chickens have bright white feathers on most of their bodies, with black heads, hackles and tails.  They have blue legs, red eyes, and medium-sized, single, red combs.
