    IN THE STATES

    Here in the States it is alot different then in the Phillipines or Mexico.
    So why not not start a thread to discuss our differences!?

    Like, Here in the States, when does Breeding season start & end compared to other places?
    When does molting season usually start & end?
    Different rituals or methods we use for our fowls

    In NC they molt in the late summer to early fall. Hatch year round when I can, but prefer to hatch Feb, Mar, & Apr.

    It's the same. Breeding starts November, Molting starts in July. Cockfights are January to June, stag fights are July to December.

    Cheers!

    Re: IN THE STATES

    I have farms in both places. The biggest difference is the climate. Here in U.S. we get some below freezing weather which helps kill off disease and bacteria. Even here in Louisiana we will get a little below freezing weather each year. In Philippines, it stays relatively warm year around and gets plenty of moisture so it is a breeding ground for bacteria and disease. It is much more difficult to raise healthy fowl although the philippine breeders work hard to do so and for the most part are successful. Here in states I can vaccinate for Mareks and fowl pox, turn the biddies loose and expect to pen healthy stags in 6 or 7 months. On the philippine farm, we have to vaccinate for almost everything and still get a larger percentage of stags that have to be culled do to them not being 100% at penning age. Also the birds seem to age faster in Philippines. I have some 8 and 9 year old brood cocks here in U.S. that have been good producers so I keep single mating them. They still look fresher than some of the 4 or 5 year old cocks I have seen in Philippines. I think the year around heat without a break makes them show their age faster.

    Left out snakes. Damn black snakes and rat snakes take out biddies running on the yard. The larger hawks will leave the biddies alone but the little sparrow hawks and perigen falcons will scoop them up too. Some friends do not pen any birds except for thei older stags after catching them off the yard. All breeding and raising is done all natural at their place. You can go over in the spring and there might be 5-700 biddies running around and go back late summer and you will only see about 2-300 young birds. The rest were eaten by something. He just shruggs and says only the strong and smart survive. To him nature does the culling and he is left with the best to work with. He does well in the shows like this. Who knows, to each his on.

    My uncle in Mississippi says the same thing. He says if they are not smart enough to survive in nature then why hope they will survive in pit.. When legal of coarse!

    Re: IN THE STATES

    Laws, feed quality, soil and climate are some of the differences
