"THE TWO MAJOR THAI FIGHTING ROOSTER VARIATIES, ARE NAMELY THE LEUNG HANG KHAO (YELLOW BODY WHITE TAIL) AND THE PRADU HANG DAM (BROWN BODY BLACK TAIL) ROOSTERS.
THAI FIGHTING ROOSTERS ARE WELL-KNOWN THROUGHOUT THE ASIAN REGION FOR THEIR BEAUTY AND FIGHTING SKILLS. THAI FIGHTING ROOSTERS ORIGINATED IN SOUTH EAST ASIA, DEVELOPING FROM THE RED JUNGLE FOWL, WHICH ARE PRESENT IN THAILAND, MYANMAR, INDOCHINA AND THE PHILIPPINES. THE BREED HAS BEEN MAINTAINED BY THAI BREEDERS WHO SELECT AND DEVELOP THE BREED FOR C_OCKFIGHTING.
IN THE OLDEN DAYS C*CKFIGHTING WAS NOT CONFINED TO RURAL AREAS. DURING THE AYUDHYA PERIOD (19TH CENTURY ) PRINCE NARESUAN, WHILE HELD HOSTAGE BY THE BURMESE, BROUGHT WITH HIM THE LEUNG HANG KHAO thingy TO COMPETE WITH THE BURMESE PRINCE. PRINCE NARESUAN'S BROTHER, PRINCE EKATHOSAROS, ALSO ENJOYED THE SPORT OF C*CKFIGHTING USING THE BREED PRADU HANG DAM.
THE LEUNG HANG KHAO ROOSTER ORIGINATED IN THE NORTHERN PART OF THAILAND ( BAN KRANG VILLAGE, PHITSANULOCK ), AND IS SPREAD THROUGHOUT THAILAND AND SOUTH EAST ASIA. THE STANDARDS OF PERFECTION FOR LEUNG HANG KHAO BREED IS DETERMINED AND DESCRIBED FROM PROMINENT TRAITS OF THE ROOSTER, RANGING FROM GENERAL PHYSICAL FEATURES, BEHAVIORAL PATTERNS AND FIGHTING STYLES.
THE LEUNG HANG KHAO BREED IS A MIDDLE SIZE BIRD AVERAGING 3.00 KG. TO 3.5 KG. FOR A thingy AND ONLY 3.0 KG. FOR A FEMALE. THE thingy IS COVERED WITH BLACK FEATHERS BUT FROM THE BACK OF THE SKULL TO THE END OF THE BODY, THE FEATHERS ARE YELLOW-RED, WHICH VARIES ACCORDING TO DIFFERENT VARIETIES. AS THE NAME IMPLIES, ITS LONG TAIL IS WHITE ESPECIALLY ON THE TOP PART. THE FEMALE BIRD IS SLIGHTLY SHORTER AND COVERED WITH BLACK FEATHERS DOTTED WITH WHITE.
THE PRADU HANG DAM IS THE ANCESTOR OF THE JAPANESE "SHAMO" WHICH WAS BROUGHT INTO JAPAN AT THE BEGINNING OF THE 16TH CENTURY. IN INDONESIA, THAI FIGHTING ROOSTERS ARE SO POPULAR THAT THEY ARE KNOWN AS BANGKOK AYAM.
THE PRADU HANG DAM REFERS TO BROWN ROOSTERS WITH BLACK TAILS. IT IS ANOTHER GENUINE THAI BREED ORIGINATING FROM LOWER CENTRAL THAILAND. BOTH MALE AND FEMALE PRADU HANG DAM BREEDS ARE SLIGHTLY BIGGER THEN LEUNG HANG KHAO BUT THE PHYSICAL FEATURES GENERALLY LOOK ALMOST THE SAME, EXCEPT FOR THE COLOR. THERE IS ALSO A WIDE VARIETY OF PRADU HANG DAM BREEDS DISTRIBUTED ACROSS THE COUNTRY.
IN THAILAND TODAY C*CKFIGHTING IS STILL A POPULAR SPORT, ESPECIALLY SO IN THE RURAL AREAS WHERE C*CKFIGHTING HAS ALWAYS BEEN A PART OF LIFE. MOST VILLAGE HOUSEHOLDS RAISE FIGHTING ROOSTERS IN THEIR BACKYARDS FOR SPORT AND ALSO FOR THEIR FIRM AND TASTY MEAT."
