Childhood days are fun.
Growing up with gamecock chickens, free range meat-egg chickens, geese, dogs, and hogs in our residence located near, if not in the town center.
Vacations to.. father side and mother side.. grandparents’ residences located in rural areas.. exposed me to more animal species.. water buffalo, goat, cattle, ducks, cats.. and even wild birds of different types which are typically hunted using a slingshot and sometimes using an air rifle..
Since childhood, I observed that some individuals of the gamecock chicken species are bisexual just like the free range chicken species.
- Bisexuality sexual behavior toward both males and females.
- Homosexuality sexual behavior between members of the same sex or gender.
Bisexuality is an Exception
A well bred well trained gamecock family must be aggressive towards the same gender.
A well bred well trained gamecock roosters must be fighting each other to the death.
It is desirable too for well bred well trained gamecock hens to be fighting each other to the death.
Bisexuality in Gamecock Hens
Even in free range, some gamecock hens will mount another gamecock hen to simulate copulation.
Even in free range, some gamecock hens will voluntarily sit to be mounted by another gamecock hen.
Bisexuality in Gamecock Roosters
Even in well known cockpits in Metro Manila, some gamecock roosters do mount and copulate with a downed opponent during their cockfighting sports combat.
Even in Araneta Coliseum during the World Slasher Cup cockfighting sports events, some gamecock roosters do turn and dance towards the opponent, as if they are courting a gamecock hen, with their wing down or with both of their wings down.
Even in gamecock farm visits, some gamecock roosters do not fight each other.
What About You?
Have you observed these bisexual behaviors of our gamecock chicken species but did not recognized them as such? 🙂
