    Vorweks are True Bantams. There are no larger counterparts

    If you want something similar, Look for Gold Lakenvelder

    I fell in love with standard sized Vorwerks that I have seen only on the internet. Here is the feathersite page on Vorwerks:

    http://www.feathersite.com/Poultry/CGP/Vorwerks/BRKVorwerks.html

    I am a bit confused as to whether LF Vorwerks are the exact same thing as Golden Lakenvelders, because I think I read somewhere that Lakenvelders were used in the making of Vorwerks, which would seem to indicate that they are similar but not the exact same thing?

    I bought some Golden Lakenvelder eggs from Okiehen last summer. I had a good hatch rate and they are very pretty little things.

    We do not have standard sized Vorwerks in the USA. They would be considerd Golden Lakenvelders
