McMurray Hatchery Lakenvelder
Lakenvelders — sometimes referred to as “Shadow on a Sheet” — are small, white chickens draped in black on their neck, wings and tails averaging just 4-5 pounds mature weight. This is a beautiful breed with blue legs, large red single combs, deep red eyes and long, flowing tails. This very quick, active and alert breed will forage widely if allowed to run. Lakenvelders are very rare, and considered a threatened breed by the Livestock Conservancy. 

Lakenvelder hens have an upright stature, lay white eggs and are non-setters. 

Baby chicks are mostly creamy-white with a half-collar of black on their neck, and sprinkling of black on their head and back.
