    I got a couple mystery chicks and I looked online at several pics and decided that It resembled this breed... what do you think?

    She is 14 weeks on Sunday.

    THanks!

    They lay small white eggs and her silver appearance will likely darken

    They lay medium sized white eggs. Because they were bred in Germany, I'm guessing they are pretty cold hardy. I'm not sure how they are as egg layers.

    There are some great Lakenvelders at a variety of hatcheries if you would like to get them there. I hope to get a lakenvelder too, because they are so beautiful.

    And welcome to BYC! [​IMG]
