    Somewhere in the Southwestern Desert...

    There are still people that breed and propagate the gamecock bloodlines Even in the middle of the desert in 120 degree sun.

    Enjoy the pics of the people I met there.



    Pics of one of the "Corrales" or farms to us.





    Just letting them raise their hackles. No sparring coz it's not allowed



    Here's Topher; 5/8 Mexican and 3/8 Filipino



    Here's Noel; 7/8 Filipino, 1/8 Mexican and Me (1/2 Filipino, 1/4 Mexican, 1/4 Jap)

    And Popoy; 15/16 Filipino and 1/16 Jap



    And the Corral next door of Manuel. 8/8 Mexican



    Having some grub. The best Mexican food I've had! This is where the Galleros hang out. Look at the artwork in the background.

    Thanks for the great time! We are all brothers....from different mothers

    Cheers!

    Senti.....you've heard that joke....what do you get when you cross a Mexican and a Chinese?

    Seriously though man...where on earth are Mexicans breeding with Filipinos to come up with those percentages...

    Like the 5/8th-3/8th guy....that must have been several generations of careful breeding..lol

    This blood percentage thing reminds me when the Philippines is under the colony of Mexico while Mexico is under the colony of Spain

    Yes sir, its one of the awkward things when a colony is ruling another colony. But when Mexico got its independence from Spain, then the power of ruling Philippines got transferred back to Spain. It was thought to us in History.

    The archipelago (Philippines) was Spain's outpost in the orient and Manila became the capital of the entire Spanish East Indies. The colony was administered through the Viceroyalty of New Spain (now Mexico) until 1821 when Mexico achieved independence from Spain. After 1821, the colony was governed directly from Spain.

    The Philippines was not a colony of Mexico. It so happens that the viceroyalty of New Spain was based in Mexico City at that time. This viceroyalty was an appointed Administrator by the King of Spain.
    New Spain was a colonies of Spain comprising Mexico, Peru, Central America, California, Texas, Puerto Rico, some parts of USA and Canada and the East Indies such as the Philippines, Taiwan, Marianas Islands, Mallacas.
    New Spain was a colony of Bastile and Spain!

    I just hope there was no linebreeding to get those percentages.
    But seriously thanks for sharing the pictures of your visit. Did you asked what they feed their birds to compensate for the lack of green grass? probably vegetables, or alfalfa I would think. Thank you

    Hey, where you there? How'd you know about that?

    Actually, I did bring home some dried chiles from there and brought it here and used it in that chili contest. I think that was the ace up my sleeve

    Alfalfa is actually a really good supplement, we feed it to our birds in Mexico for the same reason, no access to grass. We have 6 corrales were we keep birds, but all the birds are in fly pens. Alfalfa has a high amount of protein, calcium, minerals, iron, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin E and vitamin K.
