Golden Lakenvelders are beautiful with black-on-gold markings, white skin and slate colored legs. When translated from the Dutch, "Lakenvelder" is reported to mean "shadow on a sheet."

The Golden Lakenvelder is a beautiful and rare variety, with the Silver Lakenvelder being somewhat more common. They are good, dependable producers of small or medium white to tinted eggs. This rare breed is a non-setter. Silver Lakenvelders are quite small at maturity, and very quick and active with a tendency to avoid human contact. Even so, they are an entertaining and fun little bird to watch in the yard, with hens reaching only 3 to 4 pounds. Flyers, they can often clear fences, although they do adapt well to confinement. They are economical eaters and good foragers.
