    Does anyone know how to tell if a chick is a silver lakenvelder or a golden lakenvelder? My family has one of each, but we don't know which is which. Is there any way to tell them apart before they mature?

    slivers are whitish grey and black goldens are light brownish grey black Should be able to tell by the head as it will show the best color, or put up a picture and we can tell you

    I can tell them apart now! As soon as they started getting wing feathers it became obvious. Thanks for the help!
