  •  So, how do you separate the fighters... (1+ / 0-)

    from the breeders? It seems to me that might be rather difficult, unless you catch them in the act. Then again, I've never raised cocks for fighting-Had a few cocks and they were mean bastards. Prefer my hens and really love the eggs...

    •  they all have individual pens or it's (2+ / 0-)

      just not possible and would be a bloodbath....

      Game Cocks are nothing like a barnyard rooster that while mean, the fights are more bluff and posture with brief actual fighting and one will submit....

      Game Cocks do not submit and will fight till they drop of exhaustion if they're despurred and can't really hurt each other.....A lot of them will attack anything that moves besides their hens and some are even too mean to breed.....Some Game hens are even spurred and you have to be careful to watch when introducing new hens to a flock.....

      They're beautiful though and can be bred into barnyards to add some more self foraging abilities and general toughness....
