Laguna: Home of Cockers and Breeders

            Laguna is one of the best places in the Philippines. If you say Laguna, maybe the thing that comes first to your mind is Pangasajan Falls or this is the birth place of Dr. Jose Rizal. Beside that, they are known for their hot springs. As a matter of fact, there are many resorts here. They have also a delicious buko pie and some native products. Not only that, if you’re a certified cocker, you also knew that many farms built here. The farm owner chose Laguna because the place is very suitable for chicken breeding. The atmosphere is refreshing although this is not a mountainous area compared to Bacolod.

            Laguna farms are very accesible to buyers from other part of Luzon. They don’t need to travel in a far flung area like Visayas and Mindanao just to buy select breeding materials. If you’re worrying about the quality, don’t think about. Laguna is the home of many noted and respectable breeders in the country. To name a few, they are Baby Canillas of Spanichi Gamefarm. He is very known for being a meticulous and a scientific breeder. Then, you will also find the farm of Boy Tanyag and Engr. Sonnie Magtibay here. Boy is the 2009 Bakbakan winner and Engr. Sonnie was his financier who became a champion in World Slasher Cup in 2010. Who else? You will also find here the Blue Blade Farm, owned by Engr. Sonny Lagon who is also a famous breeder. You don’t need to go to Bacolod just to buy chickens. Because even in Laguna, you can look for good chickens.   

            The good thing also about Laguna, the associations here are very active like Laguna Gamefowl Breeders Association (LAGBA) and Laguna Cockers and Breeders Association (LCBA). There are many cockpits around the province. Only in San Pablo, they have three cockpits namely Lucky Sports Complex, Fantastic Cockpit Area and San Pablo Cockpit Arena. The  gamefowl enthusiasts are really enjoying the sport. It is also easy for them if they want to participate in a derby outside their province. They are only near at Batangas, Cavite and Quezon. Then, Laguna is just also near in Metro Manila comparing if they are coming from North Cotabato or Cebu. So, it is also very easy for them to join in derbies there. We knew that major derbies are conducting in Metro Manila like NCA, World Slasher Cup etc. Unless Laguna cockers would join in Araw ng Davao and Candelaria International Derby.
