Lakenvelder
These Dutch birds are thought to be named after the town of Lakenvelt, but they were developed in Germany. They're very rarely kept in the U.S., but those who do keep them do so as pets, for eggs and show only. Abroad there are several other varieties of Lakenvelders bred, but domestically Silver is the only variety (pictured below).
