The Luikse Vechter AKA Liege fighter is giant 19th century Belgium game fowl that stands head and shoulders above any breed we've come across! This huge bird is very heavily muscled with an upright posture. The roosters present an imposing figure, and they seem to know it! Approaching 30 inches tall weighing in around 12 lbs with feet the size of some turkeys they rarely get challenged on our farm. That being said our 9 year old can often be found carrying one around in a bear hug. While they have proven to be very calm around people they can be very effective in protecting the flock from avian predators.
