India Taste of Gamecock


The United States do not have the tradition of using the dead gamecocks at cockfights as food.

In the Philippines and East Timor among other asian countries, the losing gamecocks at cockfights are butchered as food by the victors. In the Philippines, at least for my direct ancestors, if gamecock lost and there is no agreement that the victor claim our gamecock, the gamecocks will be buried deep in the ground much like a last respect to the fallen.

The videos above show that in India the fallen gamecocks also are butchered for food and you can actually see how the small children de-feathered some of the dead gamecocks at a cockfight.
