  • The Lakenvelder is an old German breed that is famous for its unique color pattern. The neck, saddle, and tail feathers of the Lakenvelder are black, while the wings, back, and breast are white. The pattern gives them a belted look similar to Dutch Belted cattle and Hampshire hogs. The sharp contrast of black and white feathers makes them an interesting bird to have and admire. In addition to their unique color, they are also very good egg layers. They are a lightweight active breed that is well adapted to free-ranging. The Lakenvelder is a unique and rare breed that would add interest to any flock, all while producing lots of eggs for the table.
