Breeding season for fighting cocks

Gamefowl breeders are now preparing for the breeding season because from October up to March is an ideal to breed gamefowl or fighting cocks. The breeding of gamefowl needs more preparation because if a breeder is not wel-prepared your breeding of fighting cocks or gamefowl will result to loose of money. The basic things you should consider in the breeding of gamefowl is that to have a good breeding materials that can produced better fighting cocks that can compete in small or even bigtime derbies like the bakbakan, candelaria international derby or world slasher cup.

Having a good material before breeding is very important so that your breeding will end right because you start it right. Good breeding materials can produce quality fighting cocks with characteristics of high station, good looking and excellent fighting style. Aside from having better breeding materials it is also important to set your goals for example you breed because you are going to sell your fighting cocks or you are going to join in a derby. After setting your goals you need to find a handler or care taker that will take care of your birds. You need also to find a place that is ideal to breed fighting cocks and construct a breeding pen and other things needed in the breeding.

Before mating the brood cock and hen make sure they are in good health and conditions. Meaning you need first to condition your breeding materials so that they give you a healthy chicks. After you can produced out of your breeding don’t forget to apply vaccination in your birds. In my case I start with B1B1 lasota, then bronchitis and fowlfox vaccine.

Giving vaccine to your bird can help to secure the health of your birds and it can prevent some diseases. A healthy fighting cocks is advantageous to the sickly one, so always make sure that you give proper feeding, vitamins and vaccination to your birds. You need also to know about genetics like in-breeding, line-breeding, and cross-breeding.

The breeding of gamefowl or fighting cocks for me is trial and error because you need to breed and cross-breed fighting cocks until you can find the best battle crosses that can give you more wins.
