Advocates of the "age old sport" Two owners place their gamecock in the cockpit.The cocks fight until ultimately one of them dies or is critically injured.Cocks are given the best of care until near the age of two years.

But it was during Magellan's voyage of discovery of the Philippines in 1521 when modern cockfighting was first witnessed and documented by Antonio Pigafetta, Magellan's chronicler, in the kingdom of Taytay.The combatants, referred to as gamecocks (not to be confused with game birds), are specially bred and conditioned for increased stamina and strength.Male and female chickens of such a breed are referred to as game fowl."it is not known whether these birds made much contribution to the modern domestic fowl.Chickens from the Harappan culture of the Indus Valley (2500–2100 BC) may have been the main source of diffusion throughout the world." "Within the Indus Valley, indications are that chickens were used for sport and not for food" (Zeuner 1963) At first cockfighting was partly a religious and partly a political institution at Athens; and was continued for improving the seeds of valor in the minds of their youth, but was afterwards perverted both there and in the other parts of Greece to a common pastime, without any political or religious intention.Fights are limited to a single round of 30 minutes, but statistics show that more than 50% of the fights end within the first five minutes.
