Item description for Handling and Nursing the Game Cock (History of Cockfighting Series) (History of Cockfighting Series) by A. C. Dingwall PH. B....

HANDLING AND NURSING THE GAME COCK.

A COMPREHENSIVE EXPLANATION AND INSTRUCTION ON THE MOST EFFECTIVE MEANS IN HANDLING AND NURSING GAME COCKS IN BATTLE.

VARIOUS INJURIES DESCRIBED AND NURSING EXPLAINED.

NATURAL ABILITY OF HANDLER EXPLAINED AS HELPFUL TO SUCCESSFUL COCKER.

MANY PRECAUTIONS FOR SUCCESSFUL WINNING OF BATTLES ADVISED.

By A.C. Dingwall, Ph.B.

Although many "Cocking" titles are available to today's Gamefowl breeders and fanciers, very little has been written on the actual handling of fighting cocks in the pit.

The author, with his many years of practical experience, wrote this book to enable his fellow cockers take care of their birds more intelligently during and after battle. It was the first in-depth book ever published on the subject.

This unique historical record, published in Chicago in 1928 is extremely scarce and costly in its first edition.

READ COUNTRY BOOKS has now re-published it, incorporating the original text and explanatory photographs, as part of their HISTORY OF COCKFIGHTING series. Its 78 pages contain the following detailed chapters:- Handling Preliminary to Battle. -- Qualifications of a Handler. -- Precautions in Handling. -- Nursing for Couples. -- Nursing for Rattle. -- Neck Blows. -- Fatigue and Exhaustion. -- Blind or Blinked. -- Runaways. -- Broken Wings and Legs. -- Throat Cut. -- Brain Blows. -- Random Pointers. -- Worthwhile Reminders. etc.

The publishers have also included the original blank battle record pages bound into the rear of the book.

Many of the earliest sporting books, particularly those dating back to the 1800s, are now extremely scarce and very expensive. READ COUNTRY BOOKS are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.

Reviews - What do customers think about Handling and Nursing the Game Cock (History of Cockfighting Series) (History of Cockfighting Series)?

An excellent resource  Jul 23, 2008
We have here an invaluable resource for the care of game cocks. It offers a lot of that advice that you are otherwise only likely to get from the old timers in the sport. The concerns raised by other reviewers (whom I bet haven't even READ this book!) that the sale of this book constitutes some kind of cruelty are misplaced. Hundreds of cookbooks exist wherein ingredients can only be got through the slaughter of chickens. Does that constitute condoning animal cruelty as well? At least game cocks die honorably and in accordance with their nature, in stead of being mechanically "turned off" in a factory. If they were people, game cocks would go to Valhalla.
 
Shame on Amazon  Jun 8, 2007
I thought you might be interested in this Humane Society US campaign to stop this site.com's sales of illegal animal fighting materials. this site
sells both cockfighting magazines and bloody, graphic
dogfighting DVDs. The company is so determined to continue
selling these materials that it filed a motion against The HSUS
in federal court, essentially asking that federal and state laws
to protect animals be gutted to accommodate this site's sales of
animal fighting paraphernalia!

Please ask this site to remove these materials from its website.
