    3 rounds a day is very hard if you have been there u will understand 2-3 am then back at it 7am that is why the 9c got changed to 7c was because of that 2-2-3 instead of 3-3-3 i spoke with another person spoke to walter

    7 was the biggest 1 day . 8 or 12 cocks would be a 4 cock each day . They also had 3-4 refs and fights nearly non stop . When we see how slow they build up each fight in PI it seems like it would be miserable

    Bayou would have 7 and 9 cocks all in one day. Over 100 entries usually. Start noon Sat. and usually get over about daylight. Most of these were gaff or combo derbies. Sunset would fight 8 or 10 cocks. 4 or 5 a day. They would start by 11 and be done in time to tend to tomorrow's birds. But they usually have 40-60 entries. I fought in one derby at Mid America a 5 cock and there was over 200 entries in it. One pitting go to the drag. 7 pits full all the time.

    best place fastest was springbrook marvin would run them through fast he made sure it was done so he could make church sunday they would have 7c with 150 entries and be done at 5pm however one has to remember that there are rounds in mexico and also the runners have to get the bets in so each round takes time that is why it takes a bit longer than back in old days of texoma bayou and other places.......
