    My family got six chicks for Christmas. My mother has a list of the six different varieties, but didn't know which was which. Thanks to google we were able to identify four of the six, but we have two that look similar. One is a silver lakenvelder and the other is a golden lakenvelder. Does anyone know how to tell these two apart? Obviously we will know eventually, but I'd don't want to wait, so I figured I would ask.

    Thank you! That was exactly what I needed. Clementine is our Silver and Ambrosia is our Golden. :)
