Oh my,  I think I may be getting some more chickens!  Beautiful.  I have never heard of these.  Where do they originate from?  And who does have some?  Anyone know?

Vorwerks are a German breed. In the US, they are called golden lakenvelders. They are available from several hatcheries, but if you want real vorwerks, a breeder would be best. I don't know of anyone who has them. smile.png

Actually, Golden Lakenvelders and Vorwerks are two different breeds.  I haven't heard of any largefowl Vorwerks in the USA, but Lund Poultry has bantams.

Lakenvelders where refined in Germany, in the 1830's.  Their ancestors are believed to be the Egyptian Fayoumi, and other Persian Fowl.  The Lakenvelder is four to five pounds. The white color is the original variety, buff came later. 

 

Vorwerks where developed by breeder Oskar Vorwerk.  This took place in Germany, during the 1900's.  Mr. Vorwker used Lakenvelders, Buff Orpingtons, Buff Sussex, and Andulasians to create his breed.  It is medium sized fowl, around four to seven pounds.  The bantam variety was created in the USA, which is why there are a few bantam breeders here.

Yes. They are more of a dual-purpose fowl, then a skinny egg layer.
