If I ever want to participate in chicken fighting, I can, because my Lao counterpart has given me all I need to know.
- Selecting a good chicken is important. You need to check the back of it's neck, the wings and the neck to make sure it's strong.
- You should feed it a special diet of egg mixed with paddy rice and then dried. Feeding it vegetables is important too.
- It needs to exercise. My counterpart made a chicken running machine comprising a cylinder with a handle. He also puts the chicken in the water so that it flaps about for exercise. He places the chicken down a large tube and it exercises by trying to get out.
- If it's not winning, trade it in!
