Philippines (part 5) – The fight is on!

Written by Iceman on September 4th, 2008

This little set from the Philippines comes from the Cockerel farm that I visited. I was given the chance to see a few of these birds “practise” fight, which means that they had little gloves on their claws — like boxing gloves.

It was amazing to see how aggressive these birds are towards each other, it has obviously been bred into them, as North American roosters are not this aggressive. I’m not sure if I would enjoy a real fight, as they can be very bloody — but the practise rounds were interesting to watch.
