The Lakenvelders Chicken or commonly called Lakenfelders are a breed of chicken that was developed in the early 1800’s in Germany. These chickens are a smaller chicken and have small bones. The feathering has very distinct and contrasting colors of black on white. The predominant color is white with a black head , neck and tail feathers. The black has white mixed in with it. The Rooster has a bit more black in the tail area because of his long tail.
This is not considered a good farm bird for a dual purpose breed. they are too small for meat but are fair layers of small to medium sized egg. This makes them good for Showing and eggs production. Fair for pets!
If you note the photo these chickens have a slick, slate blue leg without and feathering.
