    What is a "hi-breed" battle fowl?

    What is your idea of a "hi-breed" battlefowl? The kind of gamefowl that will excel well in the big fights. Is it a two-way breeding between two so-called pure bloodlines? Or is it a combination of two or more bloodlines? Many times we have seen moneyed breeders bring in the most expensive and the best bloodlines out there, but when we see them fight their production we see mediocre chickens. Is a two-way cross enough to produce a "hi-breed" rooster that will exhibit all the traits that we look for in an ace battlecock? Or do we need to go further to a three way or four way or even a five way battlcross in coming out with a "hi-breed" battlefowl. Is gamefowl breeding similar to the genetically modified crops we see nowadays wherein the characteristics of two or more crops were combined in order to produce a more superior crop.

    Sir i think you are referring to "hybrid"battlefowls when you say "hi-breed"battlefowls.Hybridization in fowls especially in gamefowls is a crossbreeding between 2 or more bloodlines.They maybe 2 way,3way or 4 way crosses and we usually call them battlefowls because they are the ones we fight in the pit. Looking or searching for an ace battlecock is a matter of good and proper selection and personal preference.if you find all the characteristic that you are looking for in a battlecock in your 2 way crosses(esp.when they nick to each other)then you dont have to go 3way or 4 way crosses.for me 2 way cross is enough if the winning percentage is from 80 and above..

    that is actually the idea
    but that depends on the quality of your two crops
    that you are trying to combine
    whether they compliment to each other
