Qualities of Good Breeding Cock

Breeders have different criteria in selecting cocks for breeding purposes, but there are certain qualities that they watch out for. In the following paragraphs, we are going to discuss some qualities of a good breeding cock.

Gameness: When the going gets tough, the tough gets going. A cock that thrives under immense pressure from an opponent is good for breeding. The cock’s ability to take punishment from his enemy showcases his character and gameness.

Cutting ability: A cock with a deadly cut is a stud. He needs to demonstrate this skill multiple times in actual fights. Cocks with this ability can kill an opponent within a few minutes. Faster cocks tend to hook a lot, limiting their chances to score a quick kill.

Easy pecker: The beak is an important weapon in cockfights. It can be used both offensively and defensively. A cock will never be out of a fight as long as he can peck back and we’ve seen badly injured cocks salvage a win from the jaws of defeat by putting their beaks to good use. Cocks that make good use of their beaks are good for breeding.

Resistance and build: Cocks by nature are spirited and mean fighters. But they are not created equal. Some are gifted with the tools to be really great at fighting. Strong thighs signify power and a solid chest indicates good lung and cardiac capacity. Well-developed muscular wings allow better balance and well-developed bones contribute to better muscular capability. Cocks with these attributes are perfect for breeding.

Proportionate height: Cocks that are too short can be dominated by long and athletic opponents while cocks that are too tall tend to be clumsy with their legs and wings not moving in conjunction. So it is imperative to pick a cock with proportionate height for breeding purposes.
