I was searching utube and ran across a video on using tumeric to toughen exposed skin on a rooster. As I know NOTHING on this subject I was looking for some insight on what you guys think of this and what your tips and tricks are for toughening exposed skin? dose face need diffrent treatment than neck, legs or thighs?
Will a rooster develop the red skin without treatment?
I would say that since you are new with ganoi do not use tumeric yet. Unless you are planning on boxing him in the next few months at a high stakes bid, just stamina train him. The best way to get your ganoi to condition right now is to make sure his health is good then stamina train him giving him plenty of sunlight with shade and proper feed. FYI dont stamina train boxers like you would a LK bird that is a big mistake. also make sure your sparring partner has a bird similar in size and shape too otherwise if your bird is bigger he will look just fabulous against a much smaller bird.
Search through old Ganoi post on here. This topic has come up a few times. You can also read about it on ganoi.com. Search through that site a lot. Don't use too much tumeric, you can ruin the skin and make the bird too tight. You also need red tumeric which is hard to find in the states. If you also go through old post on the "buy & sale" section you can find a guy named Hung who sells the mixture. Take power-cain's advice though. Learn to use the right amount on junk birds before you use it on your ace. And don't use the regular yellow tumeric. It's a waste.
Lemon grass is used to wash the birds for "skin help". Some Asians use it but they may not be fully aware of why they use it. Lemon grass has natural anti-inflammatory properties that is why it's used. You will find lemon grass in the pits. Make sure they are fresh cut and not frozen ones as the properties that you want will be deminished. Boil the lemon grass in the water used to wash your bird. also you can steam the lemon grass while you wash the bird and let the properties "air-out" around the bird. You can buy seeds and plant them around your house too as it is a natural mosquito deterrent (spread viruses to your birds) and then you will have unlimited supplies. 2 birds with one stone type of deal. Hope this helps.
Turmeric (not Tumeric) comes from a plant common to south asia. It is used in alternative medicine in humans as well as in veterinary medicine (Homeopathy medicine). The active ingredient is a chemical known as Curcumin which has an anti-inflamatory, analgesic and antioxidant properties...( and many other uses.) But I used it mnostly when I prepare "Chicken Curry" from either a Ga Noi, Asil, or a Brazilian game. My friends loves it!
use fresh lemongrass from your backyard or buy it at an Asian grocery store. boil and let it cool down (very warm) it's best. wash the bird from head to toe, after wash Sunbae your rooster keep and eye on him depending on temperature. After training, fine chop some lemongrass mixed with your special feed after Sunbae or training an offer clean water as needed.
if you have more than one rooster you could always plant your own lemon grass in your backyard and use it when needed
