Liege Fighter

Discussion in 'General breed discussions & FAQ' started by 1cock2hens, Dec 10, 2016.

  1. I saw that greenfire farms is going to have The Liege Fighter, aka Luikse Vechter / anybody have any info on this bird and it's temperament towards other fowl? Website says they are generally friendly to people but doesn't mention if they are aggressive towards other birds/ I imagine they would be since they are gamefowl. Any other information about them would be wonderful too, I would love to see pics if any of our overseas members have them, they are absolutely gorgeous birds

    C1C370EF-4C71-4DAE-BEC9-D413726BB98B.jpeg I have two chicks, was wondering the same thing. So far they aren’t fighting as much as the cemani chicks did so I was wondering if they were going to be ladies...
