Sabong Tips Maintenance Conditioning Basics
Keeping sick or Sabong malformed birds is discouraged. To fight well or to breed healthy game f
owl you must start with the best quality birds you can afford. Birds MUST be immunized
according to the veterinary recommendations for your area. Most local poultry feeds
supply stores around the world can help you develop a vaccine program.
- I have posted my vaccine program and information on the vaccines on my website.
Like all breeders and cockers I too have had birds that I have purchased as stags die suddenly
when they reach 18 months old and also those beautiful cocks that get tired and are gasping for air after one buckle when sparring.
I will not tell you why these happened as you must study and learn about game fowl diseases
and vaccines here but both conditions would have been averted by vaccinating the game fowl as chicks.
Just as vaccines protect your birds from viruses and most diseases, delousing, deworming
and bacterial flushing according to routine will eliminate those parasites that will steal your game fowls stamina and good health.
Feeds during the ranging period are a Super conditioning grain mixture.
I supplement the natural grains with water soluble vitamins daily,
and vitamin B with iron injections twice monthly.
Sabong Tips Conditioning Versus Pointing
Conditioning is a broad term and I choose to be more specific in this area.
As gamefowlbreeder and cock fighter I employ natural conditioning for Battle Stags,
Battle Cocks, and Brood Stock differently. Natural conditioning is
where I try to use natural products and vitamin supplements to
get the game fowl into excellent physical and mental condition.
- My natural conditioning method is not complicated or unique in the game fowl world.
I will try to explain each method after I explain a bit about Pointing. Pointing is that
final physical and mental preparation usually beginning 36 hours before the fight or sabong.
During the Pointing period we monitor their foods and water, institute some form of carbohydrate
loading to augment their muscular performance and monitor their weight.
We are also careful to give them much rest during this period.
I do not advocate using other than vitamin B-12, B-complex like Sagupaans Complexor 3000
and water soluble vitamins and electrolytes when Pointing your birds. Personally,
Using steroids, or hormone supplements and of course the ever famous, guaranteed to make your birds win,
“Kipuku” elixir injectable to use 2 hours before the fight will eventually
result in disasterous results. My advice….. Keep it natural! Keep it real!
Sabong Tips Preconditioning of Broodstock
Inject the Broodstock against NCD, IB, IBD, and FOWL POX before breeding.
Do a deworm 7 – 9 days before putting the Brooder. Take a bath of mite free shampoo after deworming.
Shave the butt of male and female to make sure that the cells will come inside.
Do a bacterial flushing in 3 days to make sure that the cock has no any kind of diseases.
Give Selectrogen Electrolytes with vitamins and minerals and B50 Forten every day.
Give the Male and Female of .5ml B Complex with Iron. Give vitamin E gel capsule once a week for brooder and cock.

Sabong Tips Conditioning Battle Stags To Fight
Battle Stag conditioning requires more of your attention than cocks as
they are still young and are still prone to injury.
At 3 to 4 months they are still eating Stag Developer and at this time
we introduce a mature hen into their area to help spur their maturity.
The presence of hens seem to calm them down also. At 5 months old I move them to flypens,
with a roosting height of 5 feet that I gradually raise to 7 feet to allow the exercise.
Their ranging areas have roosts at 4 feet. Generally I keep them in the fly pen
with the hen close by every other week then the in between week they are in a scratch box 1 hour a day.
As they mature they will become cocky so that is the time to cord the stag with a pali just longer
than the pali for cocks. Exercises for stags are not recommended and the extra cord will give them extra room to roam.
When corded I switch them to conditioning grains. By the time they are going to the fly pens
I am giving them 75% Stag Developer and 25% Grains, The next week 50-50% and the third week 25% Stag Developer
and 75% grains. Once corded they are feed full Developer Grains.
- I administer vitamin B-complex like Sagupaans Complexor 3000 weekly to the stags at 3ml per bird
and add multivitamins to their water. When training for a Stag Derby I do not exercise them
just rotate them between the Flypen at 3 days a week and Scratch Box also 3 times a week.
- I will spar them twice during this 21 day natural conditioning period but one buckle only
and the buckle lasts only 30 seconds. For feed during the 21 day fight conditioning period
we switch to a high protein derby conditioner To enhance their scratching exercise.
