    Coconut Oil

    Back in the early 60s, we used coconut oil, but not much though.

    why they have shinny feathers

    as you describe the cocks fought in the WSC, it is because of good health and good conditioning...

    try to watch the activity of your cocks during conditioning, you will notice that they groom themselves by getting natural oil from a gland at base of their tail (which Kidd Sentencia said) and spread it over their feathers. This gives luster to their feathers.

    In my personal view, this grooming is a good sign that my cock is responding well to my conditioning method. He is preparing himself for battle.

    To support this, try to compare the feathering of cocks in the cord with those in the keep. Definitely, cocks in the keep will look better with shinny feathers.

    A good diet, regular delouse (a good anti-mite/anti-lice shampoo)

    ...plus try to massage your roosters by running your hands through their feathers several times a day...

    hello guy's

    tama po si ronking what he is trying to impart to the group is what you call "dust bathing". e2 po ung gnagawa ng mga manok natin na inilulubog nila ung katawan nila sa lupa. thru that, ung oil sa mga feathers nya e naikakalat ng maayos sa buong katawan nya, giving them shiny feathers.

    same is true dun sa manok nahihimas...that's the reaosn why I was recommending massaging the rooster...it releases natural oil and spreads it evenly on the feathers...kinda similar to brushing or combng your hair...oils up the hair and gives it a good shine...
