It all depends my friends, itīs true that in the past we had to provide the right balance of nutrients in a natural way which many a times was kept as a treasure secret of the trade and required a lot of elbow grease, but since times have changed and we must adapt, new chalenges come in front and the bar has been raised concerning competition so new challenges have come with the share of hard work regarding feeding, training and breeding. As I always say, gamefowl breeding, selection and competion ITīS A NEVER ENDING JOURNEY
In the past 3year ago most of the birds i see at the rings began losing power at the third round (in tape boxing) and slowly moving from that time. But now they are stronger powerfull and keep going to round 5th.
Phk Asil then when it was legal when some one had the right keep.with winstrol and equapose, right.Would make a dunhill at like he could fight with out a head.That being said .The trick was to get it right.Also that being said it was to tricky for me.I went the old fashion way,very hard work in training.
Vitamins and minirals is a must in general but you can inject whatever and stuff him with diffrent pills but that wont give you lung. So for me in 1/4 redonda where theres no rounds just 45 min straight it hasn't changed on the keep wise.
you have to study and know your bird. how he reacts, if he reacts positive or negative to certain keeps, conditioning methods etc...which weight he performs better at. 6-7 lbs, or 8-9lbs. but even more important is to keep the bird active and motivated. mentally condition him as well, not just physical conditioning. keep him well rested and isolate from seeing other roosters for a couple days to a week..the quieter the place the better..the less stress on the bird, the more mentally healthy he will be.all this when it was still legal in the few states...I had a lot of good birds and memorable wins with this strategy. for a long time me and my partner back then kept our "secrets" to ourselves..it was to the point where people were following us home or to our coops...we both eventually have to secretly have other people we trusted to pit our birds for us..but now it's only good to reminisce and share these tips and bits that may be beneficial to those where it's legal..
also, I prefer natural foods. fruits with a lot of potassium is great. cook ground beef and salmon is excellent for protein. high carb diet, since carbs become protein. just feed them these treats sparingly....not everyday...and notice how they react to the treats. you want them to get excited when they see or smell these treats...if your bird is dull and careless...your bird is not ready or is not reacting well...so a different method or a different bird should be trained and conditioned.
