Philippines Cockfights

Philippines Cockfights
Bangkok Thailand
Sunday, December 17, 2006

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.
