    Yup, a rare Lakenvelder. Very stunning when they are grown. Enjoy!

    I agree with the others regarding the Silver Lakenvelder, but will say cockerel.

    Yes, a lakenvelder. They are quite pretty when they grow up, I got a roo as an accident. He was supposed to be an EE pullet. [​IMG] Anyhow, females are supposed to be pretty good layers. Mine is flighty, aggressive towards the hens, a good forager, and one of my least favorites. How old is yours? Mine didn't get really red until he was around 2 months, then his comb got huge and began to get some color.

    She or He will be 2 months on monday!!! she looks like a pullet, but now if i look at her. Im thinking Cockerel, cuz the comb has gotten slightly bigger and has turned a little red? And she gets a little agressive with the turkens, espicially with the cockerels ones! But that can just be the pecking order??? [​IMG] So, im just waiting if she or he will pop and egg!
