Basics Of Pointing Fighting Cocks

Basics of Pointing Fighting cocks

After the conditioning period, the next stage before the actual fight of a battle rooster is called Pointing fighting cocks.  This stage is very important and must not be overlooked by cockers.  All the efforts done during the conditioning stage will go to waste if proper pointing is not performed accordingly.

The kind or style of pointing fighting cocks will differ for every bloodline.  Though this kind of post-conditioning method is necessary, the approach differs with every breeder.  Those who are experts in this stage will tell you that every bloodline has its own demands for conditioning.  The kind of food and the exercises differ but all agree that it must be done to ensure that the game fowl will stay in its peak form immediately before and during the actual fight.

Pointing fighting cocks is done three days before the fight.  At this stage, the fighting cock must be fully conditioned and the main purpose of this stage is to make sure that they reach tip top shape.

Vitamins

Cockers agree that they still give their fowl vitamins during the pointing stage.  The usual is vitamin B12 and it could be in injectable form or caplets.  Normally, the vitamin dose must not be the same with the regular dose being given.  If the intake was .5cc during conditioning, it could be lessened to about half depending on the weight of the cock.  The same is true with other vitamins being used. A good number of cockers prefer Liquid B 12 w/ Vitamin K

There are cockers particularly small players who do not apply vitamins during pointing and there are also those that inject more than the necessary dosage.  At any rate, the results of the experiment will show in the performance of the rooster inside the pit.  It is a costly mistake to experiment on something new during the period of pointing fighting cocks so take care that no foreign substances are injected into their system before the fight

Carboloading

During the conditioning stage, lots of protein are given to the rooster.  But this must be decreased considerably during the stage of pointing fighting cocks so as to lighten up the weight and feeling of the game fowl.  They tend to build muscles during the conditioning stage and this can take away some agility in the process.  With more carbo and less protein, they can recover lost agility and can shuffle faster and effectively.

Some of the food that can be used to feed the fighting cock are apple bits, rice, banana, and corn grains.

 Watering

Water is an important part of a chicken’s diet.  This is also true when they are at the stage of pointing.  Some bloodlines require more water while others must be given very small quantity of liquid.  Mixing electrolytes is encouraged in most cases.

The theory is with more water, moisture is high in the body and the cock will not be able to move very quickly and can have problems in terms of cutting.  Too much moisture can be seen when the rooster does not move much and also in their droppings.  There is also a way to determine excess moisture in the body and experts have a way to do this.  One is to feed them with a few bits of dry corn every 2 or three hours.

With too much moisture, the droppings are watery and when they don’t have enough moisture, the droppings are too dry. The face will also look pale than the usual and the eyes are not as black and fierce looking in most cases.  If you see droppings with green color, that means there is something wrong with your fighting cock and might need to be treated to prevent infection.

 Total Blackout

It is also part of pointing fighting cocks that they be introduced to total darkness one day before the actual fight.  This is to totally give them rest.  Total darkness will induce them to keep still and to sleep.

As mentioned earlier, breeders and trainers have different approaches to pointing fighting cocks. If you are a beginner, it is best to have a full understanding of your fighting cock bloodline and determine from there its conditioning and pointing requirements.
