14 Days KEEP By: Teddy Tanchanco
I. Feeding During The KEEPLet me reveal to you what some cockers call secrets in conditioning of gamecocks for
the pit. For starters, let us talk about feeding.Some cockers say that the secret in the proper conditioning of gamecocks is feeding. It 
is undeniable that feeding plays a veryimportant role in conditioning, but let us bear in mind that feeding should be consideredin relation to other factors, a trainer must monitor while preparing his set of feathered warriors. With due respect to othertrainers, please consider that what I am about tosay here is only what I personally do.
First of all, before going into a 14 days KEEP, we must select candidates. If you are tofight a 5-cock derby, simply multiply the
number of cocks for an entry (say, 5) by three (3) to come up with the number of 
candidates you must choose (thus, 15). It isassumed that these cocks went through a pre-conditioning process where they are in
good flesh, healthy and full breasted, but 
without gut fat or sapola. It is best that they are about 200 grams higher than theirbest fighting weight observed during the pre-conditioning. It is better to lower a cocks weight during the KEEP rather than toincrease it, which will take a lot more time, effort and uncertainty. Remember that we will do a 14-days KEEP, not 21 or 30.
Now, what is the correct fighting weight? you may ask. The best fighting weight isthat weight where your cock fought best duringthe spars conducted while he is in the pre-conditioning. In the pre-conditioning stage,record each cocks weight before every spar.Grade his fight according to your preference. He might be good, very good, excellent or
neutral during these sparring sessions. Inat least five (5) sparring, you must be able to know his best fighting weight. Considerthe weight where he fought best as his best fighting weight.Give your candidates only bread soaked in milk as flushing feed on the day of yourselection. Deworm them the usual way, and
delouse by simply spraying on the feathers. Do not deep the cocks in water. Now theyare all cleaned up, inside and out.To avoid disease and other infections during the KEEP, I inject Combiotic (only 1cc. perbird) on the breast of each cock on the first day.
For the feeds during the KEEP, I try to maintain a 16% crude protein (C.P.) level fromday one up to the eleventh (1-11). Toachieve this, mix several ingredients as follows:50% - whole corn20% - red wheat 10% - whole oats or jockey oats
10% - Royal Pigeon Feed10% - Pellets (16% C.P.)Corn is the staple food of fowl, which supplies a lot of carbohydrates and someproteins. I use red wheat instead of the white onebecause red wheat is easier to digest, and it has a higher protein level than the white.If you can't find Royal Pigeon Feed, you maysubstitute this with 5% green peas and 5% yellow peas in the ration. These feedstuffssupply most of the proteins in the cocksdiet. The 10% Pellets indicated above may be Holding Ration Pellets or simply PigeonPellets. Just make sure that the pellets youuse contain 16% crude protein. Look at the packaging for this information. The aboveproportions are measured in dry weight.All grains are soaked in water for at least 9 hours. Right after each feeding, soak thegrains you will need for the next. Soakingincreases seed moisture and stimulates germination. Germinated grains produce moreproteins. Legumes, like green peas andsoybeans, must be heated or germinated to make their crude protein metabolizable.
Otherwise, we cannot utilize the proteins fromthese grains. Mix the grains with the pellets only at feeding time. You now have what iscalled your base feed.
To this base feed, add some white of hard-boiled eggs. Chop finely one (1) white of ahard-boiled egg for every four or five cocks.This supplies some proteins and helps retain moisture inside the cocks body during this
time. Hard-boiled egg is given to the cocksall throughout the KEEP (day 1 to 14).Aside from hard-boiled eggs, add bulk (fiber), and natural vitamins and minerals to your
feed by mixing finely chopped tomatoes orcabbage or lettuce. These veggies should make up 20% of your feed mixture, while theother 80% is from the base feed with hard-boiled eggs. We use volume measurements now, instead of weights. If we take one (1)tablespoon as 20%, then we can mix (1)heaping tablespoons of veggies to four (4) heaping tablespoons of the base feed tomake a hundred percent (100%). This will be
the final make up of your feed from day 1 to 11.Provide the cocks a steady supply of grits from day 1 to 9 of the KEEP. Grits help the
cocks digest the feed and keep the gizzardwell exercised. They remain in the gizzard for about a week. Thus, grits are withheld 5days before the fight to empty the gizzard
not only of feeds, but also grits, on fight day.Feed the cocks on a regular basis. Always feed on the same exact time everyday. I givemy morning feed at 7 a.m. and theafternoon feed at 4 p.m. Give each cock two (2) heaping tablespoons of the feedmixture mentioned above. This is about 30 to 40grams of feed per cock. During the day, the cocks should be crop empty by 2 or 3 p.m.to show that their digestive systemsfunctions well. It takes only six (6) to seven (7) hours for feeds to be digested in thebody of the fowl. If one becomes crop-boundbefore the afternoon feed, take him out of the KEEP.I like cocks, which are voracious eaters and fast grinders. These show that their systemis really at work. Picky cocks or those which
leave feeds in their cups must be experiencing something unpleasant. They must beobserved and treated for any disease, and sent back to pre-conditioning. Try always to observe the cocks in KEEP before, during and
after feeding. If possible, observe them thewhole day, everyday, and even during their sleep.With this feeding system, we expect the cocks to loose that extra 200 grams off their
weight in the beginning of the KEEP.Therefore, daily monitoring of weights is necessary. Weigh the cocks in the morningbefore feeding. A cock should lower his weight by as much as ten (10) to twenty (20) grams per day and arrive at his best fightingweight on the 11th day of the KEEP or on thelast three (3) days before fight day. If one loses 50 or more grams within a span of 24
hours, the cock must be sick or incapable of bearing stress in the KEEP. Back to the pre-conditioning he goes. Three (3) days beforethe fight, we do the Carbo-LoadingTechnique.II. Carbo - Loading TechniqueCarbohydrates are the main source of energy for cocks in training. Like human athletesgetting ready for competition, thegamecock must store enough energy in his body to be used during the fight for his life.The critical days in conditioning which arethe last three (3) days before the fight, finds the trainer wanting to load up hisgamecock with as much energy as possible to givehim that power he will need. Carbo-Loading does this.Simply put, Carbo-Loading, means the technique of increasing or loading up of carbohydrates in the diet of gamecocks during
the last three (3) days of the Keep as a part of pointing.
