Dark Hatch cocks are bred, fed and conditioned for increased stamina and strength to produce fighting cocks that are either cocks or hens called game fowls. These fowls are not bred to fight when matured, but they are bred, fed, and groomed with protein, calcium-rich food to enable them to produce chicks that are highly resistant to flues and other fowl illnesses. Cockfighting is a blood sport due in some part to the physical trauma the cocks inflict on each other; this is sometimes increased by attaching metal spurs to the cocks’ natural spurs. While not all fights are to the death, cocks may endure significant physical trauma. In some areas around the world, cockfighting is still practiced as a mainstream event regulated by law or forbidden outright
Cockfighting is a blood sport between two cocks, or gamecocks, held in a ring called a cockpit. The origins of raising fowl for fighting goes back 6,000 years. Cockfighting is illegal in most countries and has been outlawed in more than 40 U.S. states. The first documented use of the word gamecock denoting use of the cock as to a “game”, a sport, pastime or entertainment was recorded in 1634.
