A handler that takes care of the fowls 365 days a year. A handler that knows how to take really good care of fowls, knows how to feed well, knows how to train them well and knows how to condition them well. Handlers are often under-rated if not neglicted, they are the ones that makes your gamecocks WINNERS, take good care of them.
When training, a handler must go down and get dirty to take the twists and turns regiment every 4 am on daily basis, 2 weeks within 21-day keep and 3 weeks within a 30-day keep. Not just by putting the fowls into rotations, cord - fly - scratch - hold (without force), its a lazy handler's way. Aside from good health and good pedigree, handlers must know how to tone muscles correctly, muscles at the back, chest, neck, wings, tighs, legs, tendons to fingers, develop it to achieve optimum flexibility, mobility, agility and recoil. Enhance exercises to maximize oxygen to the lungs to develop stamina. Lesser stamina means lesser athleticism. Improve eye - body - leg coordination. In short, how to make your gamecock real SHARP.
