On Point - Sabong Culture and Art
Each cocker will have a different approach and style when conditioning their gamefowls for competitions, but the goal is the same: to win. A good breeder or cocker knows what is best for his feathered warriors, and is able to acquire this learning through combined experience and science. When asked if all fighting cocks, regardless of their lineage, must undergo one and the same winning formula, he will simply smile and say: “Each lineage has its own conditioning requirements, and each bird has its own unique winning formula.”
Each and every game bird has its own time of being in a pointed condition or at its peak during a certain period. So you can always take seriously this valuable advice from experts: “Fight your chickens when they're ready, and not when you're ready.”
This book, therefore, aims to give you a complete understanding of how to detect the signs reflected in your roosters indicative of being in their peak fighting form, as well as give you a quick review on lineages of game birds with their corresponding fighting styles, conditioning, and pointing requirements.
