Raising a fighting cock in the Philippines

Why are there so many roosters here in Cebu?  I found out its because cock fighting is a huge thing in the Philippines.

A neighbor of mine has 5 roosters which he feeds and takes care of every day. A cock fighting rooster costs $80 (2500 php) and takes a year and a half to raise.

There’s also rooster steroids and fighting blades to buy. Is it worth it?

The reason I saw so many, is that like horse races, winning roosters can make the owners some fat purses. Besides the massive betting on this blood sport (I’ve heard of stories where people literally bet the farm), champion roosters are just like champion horses. Worth their weight in golden eggs. People really pamper and take care of their prize roosters.

They’ll  fight these cocks to the death in massive arenas, and winners will advance to a tourney of champions. If you’re in the Philippines looking for the best countries to retire cheap, seeing the care and battles these fighting cocks go through is something to check out.
