Billed them up and they ran at each other, both jumped up and both came down dead. They had never been sparred, so the method was working, thats what I wanted to believe. Now here is were we check to see if Bobby's method would work for me. Laced up the next two brothers, billed them up. Once again they went up and both came down dead. I think Bobby's has a great method, but you need a ton of birds to get three and four time winners.
    Reckon that meant they didn’t have any livability to them?

    When legal. We had a large group of guys who would get together and fight stags. And I mean a lot of stags in a day. All in the LH. So yes when I took an entry to the derbies many were 2-4 time winners as stags. And it paid off to do it. And by far the Best way to cull also.
    My partner and I went to a 5 cock at Sierra Bonita and the 5 birds we showed had 17 wins between them.--- We went 1-4,
    This Partner a month later wanted to fight his donkey left over birds.(same Pit) Won the derby straight fights with what I thought were culls. So go figure.

    You could be right. Off the cord, not dried out, on the wet side. Being brothers they would both take the same side step and hit each other with the same timing. Against each other they don't look as good, as against straight American Fowl. That little side works well against hot headed fowl.

    I know a couple guys that would enter their untested bullstags in the 1 2 3 option of the derby. They would take the winners and set back for another option entry and the winners would be combined for entry to a full derby. This seemed to work pretty good for them. Also got to see their entry into other entries that they would have to face so could judge their roosters against the real competition. This was their main culling system. The option only cost them $50 and the derbies were small like 20 - 60 entries so they said they won enough to cover their habit. They were cheap like me.

    I had a partner for a number of yrs. He tested his stags at each other, keeping the winners. Mine were just fresh healthy two yrs old fought in competition. The majority of the derbies we won were with my cocks, he fed all the shows.

    This isa good thread. We use to show every week. Sometimes twice a week. We always win 8-12 derbies a year. My best season by may I had won 17 derbies. I told of the derby I lost my money fight he was my best sparring cock but couldn't cut. He lost an hour or more fight. The next day me and my wife culled out 28 cocks. With spurs. We win the next 3 derbies. It cost less to lose them in the back yard than in money derbies.

    Lo rcr I never let no one win. If they won it was no help from me. We fought around 200 fights a year. And win on the average 120-150. I remember many time stepping in the pit and the gamblers laying 2-1.

    But back to the origin of the thread. We tested most at home before they went to a show.

    pedro I think you win a mug pullet? If you did I hope she is being good to you. This was back when legal. I would heal two in 2 gaffs 2" long. The ones that killed in the fly win 5 straight two weeks later.

    That has happened to me LaBlue. I was in against a big timer once and they were laying 100-50 against me. My cock broke every bone in the big timers rooster in the first pitting. Squawked and tried running off. So the gamblers never can tell.
    Whipped him again the next derby at 100-60 underdog. I bet him $200 even money both times.
