21-days fighting cocks Conditioning

Cockers condition their fighting cocks into 21-days or 14-days conditioning. Conditioning fighting cocks need more time. Your battle cocks need exercise, proper nutrition, and vitamins during the conditioning period. Some cockers use the rotation method or table exercise and others combine the rotation method and table exercise in conditioning their fighting cocks. The conditioning method that I am going to discuss here is a 21 days conditioning method and uses the rotation method. The candidate fighting cocks to be condition in 21 days have already passed in pre-conditioning stage.

Melsim Black – Gray Crosses

This breeding season, I want to try to breed my melsim black gray fighting cock to my butcher hens. The expected offspring of these crosses will compose of ¼ melsim black, ¼ gray, and ½ butcher. I believe that the cross-breeding between melsim black gray and butcher will produced a high winning percentage. Melsim black fighting cocks are very good shuffler, butcher are good side stepper, and gray fighting cocks are brainy.

In order to produce an ace cock, fighting cocks must be care properly. From the time they are born, you should give proper care, vitamins, vaccine, and feedings. As they grow, fighting cocks also needs exercise. It is good to give your fighting cocks access to grass. Delouse and de-worm your fighting cocks regularly.

Pre-conditioning of your fighting cocks is also a big factor if you want to have a high winning percentage. Some breeder give their fighting cocks a pre-conditioning feeds starting at the age of 5-months and up and give a B-12 or B-complex vitamins.

Aside from mentioned factors above to achieve a high winning percentage, handler is also important. Your handler is responsible of conditioning your cock and he is also the one who is in charge in pointing during fight day. The role of a gaffer is also important. If your gaffer is not good, surely you will loss in the game of cockfighting. So, in order to achieve high winning percentage, your fighting cock need proper care, proper foods and vitamins, find a good handler, and a good gaffer.

Conditioning fighting cocks–14 days

Every cocker has its own method on how to condition their fighting cocks. Conditioning fighting cocks is one of the important aspects in cock fighting.

Hatch Gray Butcher Crosses

Gamefowl breeding is more of challenges; it needs more time and money. But it is very satisfying when you can come up with fighting cocks that can give you higher winning percentage. I am new in breeding fighting cocks and I am going to start breeding them. I will use out-crossing and cross breeding methods. My foundation blood lines are butcher, gray, and hatch bloodline.

I am going to out-cross my gray fighting cock to a gray hen coming from another breeder, and called the offspring as G. Then my butcher cock will be out-cross to the butcher hen coming from another breeder and I will called the offspring as B. The result produce in out-crossing the butcher fowl (B) will be cross breed to a hatch hen, and then I will call its offsping as BH. And finally, I will cross breed offspring G to offspring BH and called the output as HG Butcher.

HG Butcher is my new gamefowl bloodline. It’s composition is ¼ hatch, ½ gray, and ¼ butcher bloodline. I am going to test the offspring later to see the results. If this can give me a higher winning percentage in the pit then I will continue to breed them, otherwise if it is not then I will change my breeding system.

It will take many years to produced your own winning bloodline. It is just like you are experimenting or doing some research about gamefowl or fighting cocks. If my hatch gray butcher crosses will be successful I will update you all.

Fighting Cocks Bloodlines

The following fighting cocks bloodlines are considered the basic bloodlines, which are commonly used by breeder in game fowl or fighting cocks breeding:

• Butcher

Phil Marsh is credited for creating the Butcher bloodline, which is a blend of Grove White Hackle and some Spanish fowl, the Speeder Grays. Calling them Butchers because of his occupation, Phil Marsh often fought under the entry name “Butcher Boys”.
Butchers are straight-combed red that often come white-legged with some coming yellow-legged. They are known for their accurate cutting ability and brainy fighting style, leading many experts to say “when a Butcher hits you, you are hit”. Medium to low-stationed, Butchers sometime come spangled and brass back in color, with the latter presently called Black Butchers.

• Lemon 84

Originated by the legend Paeng Araneta, Lemon 84 has become the base used by most Bacolod breeders. Until presently, this line is still winning. Basically from the Hatch-Butcher-Claret blends of the late Duke Hulsey, Paeng has been able to create subfamilies from the original stocks.


Lemon 84 (called as such because the original brood cock had leg band number 84) comes lemon hackled, pea combed or straight-combed and yellow and green-legged. Although lacking in gameness, Lemon 84 makes up for it with its almost automatic, instinctive and precise sense of timing when it clips the opponent in mid-air and throws his fatal punches or counterpunches. This is its most sought-after trait despite its medium or low station.

• Regular Grey

Regular Grey is said to be a combination of three grey families: the Law Grey, the Sweater Gray and the Plain head Muff Grey. Regular Grays come green legged, sometimes with yellow, silver duck wings and straight comb. They are medium to low-stationed, and are known for power and gameness. Breeders note that they are as powerful and dead game as the Blue faces. Because of these, many breeders have made Regular Grey as their foundation line.

• Roundhead

Pea combed, tall and white or yellow legged, and Roundheads are considered as ring generals. They are characteristically flyers and agile all-around athletes with superb cutting ability. The most famous among the many Roundheads is the Lacy Roundhead, originated by Judge Lacy. There are other Roundhead families like the Burners, Shelton's, Allen and Boston. It is widely believed that this family originated from the oriental fowl. They cross well with Clarets, Butchers, Grays, and of course, Hatches.

• Oriental

Shamos, Asils, Japs, Thais, Jolo, Basilan, Parawak – these are just some of the many types of oriental fowl. They are big headed, light-eyed, heavy boned, short and tight feathered and thickly shanked chickens. Very brainy and hardy, these chickens use an off-beat fighting style which twits the aggressive American type of game fowl. Accurate body hitters and smart side-steppers, sails are usually graded up to an eighth or even a sixteenth with the American fowl in the hope of retaining the desirable cutting and off-beat traits of the Orientals in the resulting battlecrosss. Either you love them or you hate them – that’s the Oriental Fowl.


• Sweater

Today, one is not considered “in” if he is not breeding the Sweater fowl. Yellow legged, pea combed high stationed, sleek body conformation and with their characteristic pumpkin-orange hackle feathers and swarming offensive fighting style – Sweaters were popularized in the Philippines by Carol NeSmith who won the World Slashes International Derby back to back. As with many families, the origin of Sweater is mired by so many versions, some even contradictory. However, it is commonly accepted that this blood, as originated by Sweater McGinnis, is heavy on the Kelso blood. Today, the more well known Sweaters are those which come from Dink Fair, Bruce Barnette, Nene Abello, Sonny Lagon, Atty. Jun Mendoza, Raffy Campos and Edwin Aranez, Bebot and Chionkee Uy, among many others.


• Kearney White hackle

Kearney White hackle is one of the most solid bloodlines used as foundation stocks because of its unquenchable do-or-die gameness. Straight-combed red with the characteristic white under hackle feathers, the Kearney White hackle comes yellow legged and sometimes spangle-feathered. This bloodline is one of the gamest among the many White hackle subfamilies and is used only for infusion purposes to prop up any floundering bloodline.


• Blue face Hatch

The Blue face Hatch, a special strain of Hatches, came to be known as such because of its pale-faced appearance, which is similar to the appearance of a fowl with Avian Leucosis. Blue face Hatches are so good that their originator, Sweater McGinnis, decided to breed them some more, with some ending up with Harold Brown, Billy Ruble, Red Richardson, Percy Flowers, and William Greene and other American cocking greats. Straight-combed, green-legged and medium to low stationed, Blue faces have carved a reputation for gameness. Used mainly for foundation blood purposes, old time breeders agree that the best battle cross carries only a quarter or less of the Blue face blood.

• Muff

Eerie looking because of the feathers on its face, the Muff is known for its aggressive frontal fighting style. Muffs throw a barrage of blows with no letup or billhold. Although low-stationed, Muffs have an unerring sense of accuracy when it comes to the cutting department. Basically red in color, they come yellow-legged and pea combed. Noted breeders of this family are Billy Ruble, John Sears and Dr. John Kozura.


• Pyle

Pyle is a plumage color that denotes one that is not red, grey or black. Pyles come white, blue, dom, off-white, off-grey or off-red colors. They are white-legged or yellow-legged and straight or pea combed.


They are known for their high flying style and accurate cutting. Many are not deep game as Hatch or White hackle, but there are Pyles that are as game. Currently, they are crossed with the sturdy and hardy lines to hopefully strike the perfect blend of fighting characteristics.

• McLean Hatch

Modern Hatches are more high flying and are faster, many coming more brainy than usual. Their usual characteristics like power and gameness, though, are still there, their blows often packing a wallop. They are basically medium-stationed and pea combed with some coming straight combed.


The Hatch blood came form Sanford Hatch who blended, as story goes, a Kearney White hackle with a Kearney Brown Red, mixing in other bloods like the Herman Duryea Boston Roundheads, Jim Thompson Mahoganies, among others, to come up with his signature Hatch fowl. From the Sandy Hatch stocks came Ted McLean’s version of Hatch that came both yellow and green-legged. Supposedly, these were the better Hatches that gave rise to the other variants of the McLean like Gilmore Hatch, Blue face Hatch, Jack Walton Hatch, Kentucky Hatch, Oak grove Hatch, etc.

• Brown Red

Brown Red has speed and more speed, with cutting to boot – the advantage of this dark fowl. Coming dark-legged, dark-eyed and with characteristic black feathering, this family is a sight to behold, since Brown Reds show more of the razzle-dazzle shuffling action type of fighting, although their drawback is their seeming lack of gameness and stamina. However, because of other infusions made by breeders, there already are Brown Reds that are game enough, lasting for more than 10 minutes. In the drag fight, these fighters are defensive and very calculating, uncharacteristic of a typical Brown Red.

Butcher Bloodline - Fighting Cocks

Butcher bloodline is a result of crosses between White hackle fowl and Spanish Speeders. This comes out with a faster version of white hackle fowls. This family of game fowl lovers developed a fast breaking red game fowl that  up to this date is very important breed, that when blended into the new models of game fowl, would improve the winning percentages of the cross.

This butchers are quite unpopular these days because of; 1. Their low station, although their long thighs and short shanks make them deadly at the draw; 2. Deep keeled, almost slab sided, those familiar with them, gives that extra kick that makes the difference between a win and lose in the board. The butcher game fowl was originated by the Marsh family namely, Phil Marsh (1869-1945), Bill Marsh (1894-1977), Alfred Marsh (1897-1971), Phil Marsh II (1918-1995).

Conditioning fighting cocks

Conditioning fighting cocks is not easy. You need more time in order to condition fighting cocks. The first thing that you are going to do in order that you can get a good winning percentage in cock fighting is you are going to take good care of your fighting cocks. You need to take good care of them from the time they are hatch up to the day when they are going to pit. Give your fighting cock vitamins regularly, proper foods for them, and regular exercise.

In conditioning your fighting cocks, you can apply natural conditioning method. Natural conditioning method means you are going to condition your fighting cocks naturally. At 4:00 in the morning put your fighting cocks in scratch pen for 20 minutes. The scratch pen should have a plywood floor and you can use dried banana leaves, corn leaves for scratching. Throw some oats or crack corn so that your fighting cocks will do some scratching. At 6:00 am chord your fighting cocks. At 7:00 am feed your fighting cocks. At 10:00 am put your fighting cocks in a flying pen. At 3:00 pm chord your fighting cocks. At 4:00 pm feed your fighting cocks. At 7:00 pm limber your fighting cocks under the light for 20 minutes if possible with music or noise so that your fighting cocks will be familiar with light and noise. Do these for 21 days, give vitamins to your fighting cocks B-Complex injectable (Complexor 3000 0.5cc every 12 days). Give them proper foods, Start carbo loading three days before the fight. Inject 0.3cc complexor 3000 3days before fight. Deworm and delouse your fighting cocks on the first day of your 21 days conditioning.

Best fighting cocks crosses

I love fighting cocks, this is the sports that I love. Visiting my game farm every weekend helps me to release my stress. I have a question in my mind, what is the best fighting cock crosses? To answer that question, I do some research and I found out that the following are some of the best fighting cock crosses, Hatch - Grey crosses, Butcher - Roundheads crosses, Hatch - Dom crosses, Kelso - Radio crosses, Butcher - Grey Crosses.

To produce a superior battle cock, a breeder must give much time to them from the breeding time up to the fight day. It is necessary to give vitamins (B12 or B-Complex) every 15 days and give proper nutrition to your fighting cocks. Exercise is also important to your fighting cocks, usual deworming and delousing is also needed. And lastly, always remember that the health of your fighting cocks is very important. A healthy fighting cocks has a greater advantage compared to the sick one.

I believe that even if your crosses of your fighting cocks is the best, but if their health is not good (lack of vitamins and nutrients intake) they will not perform good, so giving of vitamins and proper foods to your fighting cocks is very important.

Pre-conditioning to your fighting cocks is also important. Pre-conditioning means you give proper vitamins and foods to your fighting cocks from the day they where born up to the fight day. Not only giving them vitamins and condition them if there is a schedule fight for them.
