Reasons Why Cocks Run From Fight

We have seen many videos on the internet in which game fowls run after a few seconds of fight, some of them are even raised by famous breeders and cockfight enthusiasts. But what makes them run from a fight?

If you are a handler that trained and provided your game fowl the best feed to make him strong enough to fight, you would expect him to be aggressive enough on the cockpit.

But this doesn’t guarantee a game fowl to be feisty. One of the reasons why game fowls run during the fight is when they started to molt. Molting makes game fowl feathers shed to replace it with new ones.

This usually happens during cold season like autumn in the countries situated in the north or south. In the Philippines or other tropical countries, it happens usually in August.

Game fowls experience body pain during molting season, which makes them sensitive to scratches. That is why a single hit would result them to run and save himself from further injuries.

Another reason is when they were set to fight again right after they won a fight. Their wounds would take long time to heal, so if their fresh wound were luckily hit by his opponent, they would have to endure the pain again and run away to save them.

Breeders said that they recommend game fowls to rest and fight only after their second molting.

Well for those who have been experiencing game fowls that run, the source could be the one to blame. Get a new breed and condition him for the next big fight.
