Taga-bitaw ng Manok, Tinamaan ng Tari

        Ang pagbibitaw ng manok sa ruweda ay basta-basta kaya't kinakailangan ng ibayong pag-iingat. Dahil kung hindi ay tiyak na disgrasya ang aabutin, sa talim ba naman ng blade. Nangyari na ito sa isang sentensyador sa New Tarlac Coliseum. Pinagpapalagay ng mga nakakita na pinalo ito ng manok dahil nakasuot siya pajama na may kulay-pula. Kaya't payo pa ng ilan na iwasang magsuot ng ganitong kulay lalo na't isa kang sentensyador.

         Ganito rin ang sinapit ng isang taga-bitaw nang biglang pumihit sa kanya ang paa ng manok matapos niyang pingutin ang manok kahit wala na itong baena kaya't nagpupumiglas ang manok. Mabuti na lang at alisto ang sentensyador at nakuha agad ang manok dahil kung hindi baka mas malaking disgrasya pa ang inabot ng taga-bitaw.

      Nangyari ang insidente sa may Oquendo Galera, Calbayog City.

Passion for Cockfighting


Some people think that cockfighting is some kind of gambling and not a sport game. Others also believed that this is a gentleman sport. As a common people would say, “Cockfighting is bad to the new generation.”

No other sport in the world could compare to cockfighting, but majority of cockers believed differently and otherwise wanted to spread across the horizon. And, more than anything else some believed that cockfighting is not a genuine sport but a way to gain huge amount of money through betting.

A form of gambling or not, of course, there is money involved here. But it is only common in any sports like boxing, basketball, football, etc. Money is always a subject because there is a cash prize at stake. That money is a reward for those participants who know how to play the game very well.

The gamefowl breeders and cockfighteers are doing their very best to have the best breeds of chicken. Most of these bloodlines are famous for its enormous and favourable skills in cockfighting. But to many cockers, money is not their motivation or primary reason why they love cockfighting. They only want to attain honor by winning prestigious derbies. To be famous for this kind of sport is already an image building.

Famous cockers only dream to be one of the million and not to get a lot of money from this sport. They know that they cannot be rich by being a cockfighter. Likewise, breeding gamefowl is some kind of therapy for their well-being. Family bonding have place on this kind of sport.

Of course, they make some business through selling chickens to getting back their expenses. For cockfighting is very an expensive sport. So, cockers need enough budgets to continue the hobby or else we will be out of the game. If cockers have enough budgets for this cockfighting; control and discipline must be exercised at all times to survive in the cockfighting world.

Some people treated cockfighters as lower class citizen and illiterate kind of persons. Of course, there were some of them, but many were professionals and with good job in the government or private firms. It seems that they forget that many of the cockfighters are businessman, politicians, engineers, doctors, etc.


Cockfighting is a sport for all who love to enjoy and have some fun. Even ordinary people can do this at their own expense. They can bet according to the capacity of their pockets. Knowing the positive side of this sport, still, many organizations are claiming its negativity in the society.



Bacolod City: Gamefowl Center of the Philippines

Valentina Killer Grey of Melque Benedicto

In cockfighting industry many provinces in the Philippines have their own integrity and characters as to why they are famous, in terms of products and services. Like Bacolod City in Negros Occidental also known as the City of Smile and for their Masskara Festival has its own ways in uplifting its custom and traditions.

Popularity of the unique and delicious way of marinating and grilling “chicken inasal” had been famous nationwide. The procedures in preparing and cooking chicken made Bacolod City – the grilled city in Visayas Region. Also known for their sweet delicacies that truly vibrates the place to its fame.

Cockers from Bacolod City are very talented in breeding the winning chickens that’s why they are famous as gamefowl breeders. The fame and good reputation would never change as the original breeders in the Philippines. Cockers knows that Bacolod City is where they can find bloodlines of chickens that truly fight in the cockpit arena and really good in cockfighting.

Likewise, Bacolod City and its neighboring towns, having good environment is a major factor why their chickens are strong and healthy. Many farms in Bacolod City are located in high areas. So, the weather there is so different compared to the farms located in low areas.

Some cockfighting enthusiasts in Bacolod City are travelling to Manila and any part of the Philippines to sell their fighter chickens. They called themselves “viajero” in Spanish, a.k.a “biyahero in tagalog” or vice-versa. But some cockers are travelling going to Bacolod City to personally purchase chickens. However, there some way that they can buy chicken from Bacolod City. The chicken owner will shift their order through cargo and it will be picked up at the airport. But of course, it’s a right move if you will personally visit the farm because you can choose and spar the chicken. So, you will know that if it would fit with the fighting style you’re looking for a chicken.


Farms of respected breeders the likes Lance Dela Torre, Danilo Hinlo of DVH Gamefarm, Mayor Juancho Aguirre,who is very popular with his Greys and Lemon 84, Vic Yulatic, the very influential Lacson Family and many more can be found at Bacolod City and nearby areas only.

The Role of Off-Colored Chickens


Different gamefowl farms have unsimilar ways of breeding chickens. Some cockers preferred the bloodlines, characters and the enormous strength in fighting. But some need the off color chicken on their farms to familiarize its distinction. Regular chicken needs to distinguish its opponent immediately. Similarly, cockfighting needs the off-color chicken in the cockpit arena for the purpose of eliminating confusion.

Other fighting cocks would think that off-color chicken is a hen. So, instead to fight at once, they will not attack immediately until they hurt. Cockers knew beforehand the characters of its fighting cocks to eliminate losses in the cockpit arena.

Usually, that’s the tendency of regular chicken to be defeated when fighting with off-color chicken fighters. It’s a must for fighter chickens to attack at once in the fighting arena. Because of this, it is really important to put off-color chicken in our farmyard.  Actually, Hennie chicken is not a gay chicken; there’s no gay chicken in the cockfighting world.

Breeders sometimes hide the bloodlines of their chickens by mixing it with off-color, in case of making them the true fighter. Also off colored chickens have an advantage to mask the expensive and a very deadly breed all throughout. This is called the feathered warrior or gladiators for some cockers. It ushered the distinctive color from regular ones and can intimidate its opponent. They believed that off-color chicken have also skills like the regular chickens.

In the long run, off-color and regular color has no difference at all except for their color. But some superstitious cockers believed that they are lucky ones.  Both of them have a unique style in terms of fighting style and could kill their enemies. Only the wise and strong chickens have the chance to survive.

In the past, some cockers don’t like feather dusters colored chickens except for a few like Doms and Golds. For the breeders of the past, they had this notion not to exchange gameness for a beautiful color. And in fact, if you are a breeder, the mere presence in the progenies with many different colors is a sign of genetic deterioration except for white colors that is considered usual throwbacks, but other colors was an omen to a breeder and suspicion that the eggs were stolen and replaced with another egg is a consideration. 


Believe it or not, there are some cockers doesn’t like off color chickens because they believed that they are weak and not for fighting. Maybe they associated them with broiler chickens. Different opinions matters most to some but sometimes it differs in real cockfighting.

At present, everything has already changed, off-color chickens are becoming popular. Remember the Zamboanga White of Boy Primallion? It was a great chicken when Boy was still active in cockfighting. Of course, even the Dom made history in Philippine cockfighting when GenGen Arayata became a champion in World Slasher Cup using that bloodline. Then, the tandem also of Doc Ronnie Magbalon and Engr. Ralph Daigo was become also a champion in the said prestige derby using the Dom came from GenGen.



Cockfighting for some cockers is a game of chance and off color sometimes wins a derby.  It depends on how you breed and condition them to the fullest of their fighting skills. Other off color chicken breeders carrying this chicken because they also want to have a remarkable record while using this bloodline. Many cockers won for their regular color chicken, that’s why, only few cockers have a name using off color fighters in the gamefowl industry.

Few Versus Many Bloodlines


Chicken bloodline is the most important aspect of breeding chickens for cockfighting. It’s really vital for some cockers who truly believed that their chickens have the edge from the start up to the cockpit arena.

Breeding-style for cockers is not only the most advantageous but also proven by majority in cockfighting industry. Their method of breeding conforms to their beliefs and personality that really goes wherever they are. Chicken bloodline is really the key in winning and gaining financial standing in the cockfighting industry.

There are some breeders that they love to maintain so many different bloodlines in their farm. They treat every bloodline as special because every gamefowl has their own characteristic and they want to discover what it is. Discovering and exploring bloodlines to bloodlines and maintaining it according to cocker’s choice. So, it doesn’t matter if it’s Kelso, Roundhead, Hatch, Dom, etc. If they can acquire all the bloodlines in the world, they will do it. But of course, it is still depends on the capacity of their budget and to the cleverness of a breeder.

It’s not easy to maintain many bloodlines and breeders know it. But they accepted it and considered this as a challenge. For they love to do a lot of experiments. When they become successful that’s already a great accomplishment and they will feel the fulfilment as a breeder. There are lots of planning and requirements to deal with multiple bloodlines.

Some breeders maintain two or four bloodlines in a farm to greatly monitor and discover something useful in the making. While cockfighting still exists in most areas, more breeders are becoming innovative to pursue their dreams. The experimenting part is the most tiring job so far second to conditioning chickens.

So, they breed only their favourite bloodlines with interest and vigour. Cycling the bloodlines is the only way they can save a lot of time and energy. Not only monitoring the development but only infusing in other bloodlines.

The assurances of getting the best chickens are rare but experimentation of other bloodlines can do better than nothing at all. When positive result is achieved, they convince other breeders to do the same. Some breeders really make their own signature bloodline and develop the best they could.

Breeders who maintain multiple bloodlines is called “chopsuey” breeder. But limited bloodlines also have disadvantages and advantages. But make sure that maintaining only the best chickens. It is better if you acquire it from the respected breeders in the country.

So, as a breeder, you have still a freedom what to choose and maintain the best you could. These bloodlines should be undergone constant conditioning up to cockpit arena. You can make adjustment afterall and contented with what you aspire for them in the future. Experimenting chicken bloodlines is a continuing process of learning for breeders and cockers. Always learn about your trade and be knowledgeable for the good of your passion.



High percentage of winning in the cockpit is the measure that you reach the success of your experimentation and hardships. It goes well to your financial success and fame too.


How to Manage People in Our Farm

In the gamefowl industry, the farms are managed by the owners or they hired someone to do the daily operations. Every farm manager has its own way of dealing their workers or team. Good treatment for farm workers is the basic and vital character of being a good manager.

We cannot deny that there are some farm managers that really good in handling people, while there are some naïve managers or owners who do not have time bonding their team.

Different ways to enhance these factors in people handling that could uplift the productivity of the farm. Likewise, the workers as people, they need fair management and good treatment. Don’t be too bossy like in the office setting because in the farm it’s much different in environment. Of course, professionalism is the key but treating the workers fairly is another thing.

The owner can operate the farm with workers but be sure that your management style fits with them. Knowing that you’re the owner, it means that you have the authority over them, but don’t overlook the main concept in running the farm. Yes, they are ordinary people and just working for them. But remember that having harmonious relationships pave the way for success because if everyone is happy they are inspired and focus with their work.

Farm manager or the owner can learn something from the experts on how to deal with people. Likewise, new information in managing people and the laws that come with it must be known to them and you know it as well. The main reason they are working for you is that they need it for their families. And the loyalty for you comes next when treatment is excellent.

The best aspect of running a gamefowl farm is a humane treatment of the people around the place. The respect that you get can be returned by your people afterwards. Show by example and the model for them that trust will be instilled.

Treating them as friends or like family member is the best thing to do that could enhance the bond between an authority, trust and loyalty. Suggestions coming from farm workers must be acknowledged into the system of operation. Encourage them to open up or suggest positive ways for the development of chickens or the farm itself.

Because they are on the farm daily, they know the ins and outs of the farm. So, they have a lot of observations and as a farm owner, you need to know that also. Whatever they suggest, as a boss in the end still you’re the one who can decide. The bottom point is you know how to listen, and you’re an open minded person. Listening up to them is one way to show that you care for them.

Give credit to your team or another way to treat them personally when winning a derby. In fact, without them, you will never reach the highest level in cockfighting. Some financial incentive will do them good and loyalty ensues. And, if they can get a reward from you they will pursue more to achieve many championships.

Therefore, good treatment and fair management is the core of good farm operations. Always take good care of them and be supportive for their well-being and families too. The work in the farm must be extended also to their loved ones and your help in another form. This way, they will give their 100% effort and talent to their work towards the farm.
