    I'm new to this, so I hope I'm responding correctly. Thanks everyone for replying. I've been looking for this breed for a while now with no luck. I will try the website.

    Thanks again

    Ok. I looked at Lunds and I think the Vorwerks they provide are bantams. I am looking for Standard size. I should have been more clear. Sorry about that.

    I sent an email to Lunds and they sent me a reply which clearifies it for me.

    This is their reply:

    Hello! Vorwerks actually are a true bantam here in the USA. Wilmar Vorwerk develped them in the 60's with no Large Fowl counter-part. Their are however large fowl in Germany... Their are also golden Lakenveldars here in the USA and sometimes people just say they are Large Fowl Vorwerks, when they actually are not. (Sometimes people also call Bantam Vorwerks bantam Golden Lakenvelders) I hope this helps... but to answer your question, our birds are bantam.

    Thanks again for directing me to a few areas and for the welcoming I got for being a new member.
