The basics:
For many centuries game fowl were bred and fought in North France and Flanders. The Bruges game is thought to have been created then, and is considered the oldest of all the Belgium game fowl breeds. It’s earliest documentation was in 1858, and the first standard was created in 1908. Today, the Bruges chicken is very rare with breeders spread through Belgium, Holland, and Germany.
