I was in the General Santos city, Philippines, the public market and saw colorful collection of straps.
These are leg straps, used as a tether for Chickens used in Cockfights in the Philippines.
Now, I do know there are cockfights or chicken fights on the planet, yet when I looked at this display of strap for the chickens. I thought, this is a lot of them, if they have this many, than there is probably more cockfights in the Philippines than I imagined.
A man, with what I assume is his daughter; they are selling chickens to be used for cockfights. I keep wanting to say rooster, yet really, I am no sure, maybe they use both female and male chickens.
How could I have missed this website! This is awesome! FYI they only use male chickens for cockfights, aka roosters. . . .hence 'rooster booster'...took one yesterday and was literally throwing myself against the wall. . . . :)
