L is for Lakenvelder

Lakenvelders are beautiful chickens. When I was young, I got a 'trio', 
which turned out to be a 'menage a trois?'
The most masculine rooster I named Gabriel. Funny, I do not recall what I named
the other two. If I think long enough it will come to me...or keep me awake.
 Maybe I should have named them Peter, Paul and Mary? They were beautiful birds.

Mine were the 'silver' variety which are a startling contrast with black on white. 
There is also a golden variety.

I wish I had pictures of my Lakenvelders. They were gorgeous.
