    I wasn't aware there was any variety other than the standard black/white/black pattern and the golden.
    At any rate, if you have one chick, it is a matter of time and any body's guess if it will be worthy of showing.
    If it is a smaller show, Lakenvelders aren't that common so the bird may not have to be extremely good quality.
    Do you have a copy of the SOP?

    The SOP(Standard of Perfection) is a book published by the APA (American Poultry Association) which shows all the characteristics each breed is supposed to exhibit and flaws that are disqualifications in shows.
    If you have a sport or unrecognized variety of a breed, it may not fare well in an APA sanctioned show.

    You can't show a chick, if that's what you are asking
    If you are going to show her in the future, you will be able to at APA sanctioned ones as well as normal fairs. The Lakenvelder is a recognized breed of the APA and the standard by which they are bred can be found in the Standard of Perfection

    I'm assuming you meant Silver Lakenvelder, not Silver Laced
