    I recently picked up three Lakenvelder pullets about 4 months old at the auction. they are in quarenteen right now - so far no bugs or signs of icky stuff. Mine are more buff in coloring with black feathering then the silver/white in the breed standard.

    Anyone have these birds and if so, what advice/info. could you share about them? tks.

    Mine were descent egg layers, they were a bit on the wild side but not as bad as leghorns.

    I have a few not laying age yet. A bit flighty but very beautiful. Mine are the golden lakenvelders.
    You need a rooster? I have way more than I need.
    I hatched our a dozen eggs and only got 4 pullets and 8 roosters I'm keeping 2 roos. So I have 6 to pick from.

    Very pretty. I like the look of the black/white ones best.
