Oriental Gamefowl

The book, over 30 years in the making and based on worldwide research about the history and evolution of Oriental poultry races with a detailed description, their origin, distribution and current day breeding status worldwide, is a long needed work while nothing like it has been published for over fifty years. This book provides in detail educational information about the ancestors of domestic chickens, whereby it traces the origin of many ancient poultry breeds, how and where they were developed many generations ago for the purpose of sportsmanship before cockfighting was banned in most countries. But that has not stopped enthusiasts and fanciers to save many of these species from extinction and rather promoting them through a worldwide interest in exhibitions competitions, whereby in Germany alone are national poultry exhibitions with over 40,000 and even to 60,000 entries every year excite the public in tough competitions as covered in this work. Moreover, the reader will learn everything essential about purposeful breeding and preserving these breeds for future generations to come. The over 250 pictures of some 35 breeds shown in this book have been collected from various sources worldwide, many are of birds bred and photographed by the author giving the reader information not available elsewhere, which includes a today's analysis of the sport of cockfighting as well as extensive information on genetics of the rarest species.

Gamefowl Genetics

Breeding is as complicated as a jigsaw puzzle you’re trying to complete with. You have to be well-versed in the basics of gamefowl genetics to gain traction in whatever breeding program you’re into. You have to know what DNA is all about and of its functions. Sure, we were taught about genes in schools and that they’re made up of pieces of DNA. Human DNA, for example, serves as a blueprint for which all the information about a particular person’s traits is stored. Gamefowl DNA functions the same. While there are many different breeding methods you can choose from, the goal is one and the same. And it has something to do with the outcome of a particular mating you were able to predict with reasonable accuracy from the very start. You can freely breed your favorite gamefowls any way you want, but you can only consider yourself a successful breeder when, in doing so, the desired results outweigh all the risks. This book aims to educate, for the most part, the ordinary “rooster man” or sabongero, as well as the neophyte gamefowl breeder, on the proper gamefowl genetics selection, pros and cons of different gamefowl breeding methods, and my personal bias on the best breeding method involving gamefowls.

A Comprehensive Guide to Breeding  Raising    Conditioning Gamefowls

There's this knowledge that you have to gain through experience, in addition to what you have gained through the books that you have read. Knowledge is needed to successfully breed, raise, and condition game birds, and every gamefowl breeder and cocker alike must acquire and use this knowledge to further their cause, level up their game, and hopefully immortalize themselves in the world of cockfighting. You can think of this book as a mirror, from which differing opinions must be viewed from a reflective view point. You don't have to be perfect in everything you do. It doesn't have to be that way, as no one is perfect anyway. Every improvement comes from learning through your mistakes and your desire to lift up or change the situation you find yourself in. But you can always have full control over what you're only able to do. You have to make the most of it. Believe in yourself and take it to the next level. You are what you see. You are what you do. You are what you explore. It’s all up to you. The breeding, raising, and conditioning of game birds is therefore a matter of personal preference. And you have many options to choose from. You can even reinvent the wheel and secure your place on it. You see, there is only losing and winning what should matter. But the cost that can accrue as a result of your mistakes, miscalculations, misjudgments, misinterpretations, and overconfidence is something you should also try to control as much as possible. So, grab a copy of this book now and read on!

The Best Conditioning Method for Gamefowls Competing In the Long Knife

Gamefowl. Bloodlines ... American style of cockfighting, where the gaff is the weapon of choice, game birds infused with oriental lineages dominate mainly.

The Best Conditioning Method for Gamefowls Competing In the Long Knife

When it comes to Filipino-style cockfighting, we are generally talking about the game birds that compete in the long slasher knife as a weapon of choice. In the other parts of the world, they use short knives, and there are some who use gaffs too. But while these cockers may have their preferences on which is the best weapon of choice they have to use for their game birds, we have to focus on the long knife, which is why this book was written. We can hear people say that the short knife is the best, and that it is the future of cockfighting. The gaff people are quick to say that their weapon of choice is the best, citing that in the short knife and the long knife the fights are usually short enough for the audience to maintain their interest. But for those who prefer the long knife must know how difficult it is for their game birds to compete in the long knife where fights are so unpredictable and can end even in the blink of an eye. In Philippine style cockfighting where the long knife is the weapon of choice, we need game birds that can break high in the opening stanza, maneuver fast lateral movements and vertical takeoffs, deadly cutters in all aspects, and have a deep gameness. In other words, to allow our game birds to fight on the long knife requires a complete fighter. We need game birds that can not only fight very smart, but can meet and carry out a fight at a combined speed and power.
