Mr. Somkid Jongpakdee, commonly known as Kamnan Boo, Tambon Nong Mu Wihan Daeng District Saraburi Hand raised gamecocks into the blood since childhood. From the father, who used to act as the headman of the village, likes gamecocks, raising and raising gamecocks around the house. Khun Somkid has absorbed and helped his father take care of gamecocks since he was 20 years old. Rice from farming, Mr. Somkid said. Since father’s generation, he has kept four carts of paddy a year for chicken feed.
Bird flu is an epidemic that has forced father and Somkid’s gamecock farming to end. and start over 2 times 2 times
Most recently, Mr. Somkid established himself under the name of “Loki Farm” since 2018.
Khun Somkid has set goals with Loki Farm that I want to make it a farm with quality chicken standards and to develop a breed of gamecock as well. Therefore, we search for outstanding species of each region that are good, including Phitsanulok, Maha Sarakham, Khon Kaen, Nakhon Pathom, Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya. and many provinces to be mixed and selected for quality breeds
3-4 years ago, Loki Farm Develop a gamecock breed to get 3 bloodline gamecocks, namely Burmese-Ngon-Thai.

The strengths of Thailand are tactics, good maneuverability, reasonable shins, but not as sharp as Burmese. heart and stamina
Strengths of fibula, hard bone, large and strong structure.
Currently, there are nearly 400 chickens on the farm.
Daily tasks that must be managed within the farm, Mr. Somkid said.
There is a chicken house that sleeps randomly, with another layer of mosquito netting. Be careful not to bite mosquitoes. The sleeping area must be clean by covering 3 layers of carpet. The 1-2nd layer is a general soft carpet. The top floor rug is very soft. It is necessary to carpet the chicken to sleep because when sleeping, the chicken uses its breasts on the ground and the breasts are bone ridges. If it touches the floor or cement The vertebrae may be damaged or damaged.
Every morning, around 6:00 a.m. every day, the mattresses are cleaned. Take the chicken to release the treadmill, ไก่พม่า flap its wings, loosen the muscles before exercise, or called warming the chicken, then take it to exercise.
In the chicken that is not ready to fight or between the molding and waiting to collide Bones and muscles are not strong enough. Do exercises with box jumps 30-40 times, then let them walk on the treadmill, wipe the water, take tonics and herbs. Leave in the sun until the chicken is panting.
The chicken is ready to fight. After releasing the treadmill to warm the chickens, 1-2 workers were required to wrap their legs together to lure them.
Lure is to bring another chicken or sparring partner to let them collide with each other. so that the rooster who is ready to fight can practice for real, exert kicking as a call to force It takes about 10-15 minutes to cover randomly and wipe with water. Let it out in the sun until the chicken is panting, or around 11:00 AM. Take it to relax on the treadmill. In order to rest, after about 2 pm, the chickens are ready to fight with 30-40 box jumping exercises, wiping water, taking tonics and herbs. Provide snakehead or mackerel meat. If you see that the ready cock is too skinny will gain weight by eating cooked pork chops
The herbs mentioned by Mr. Somkid chose Kaempferia, wormwood, lemongrass, cucumber, tomato, which each herb has different properties, such as wormwood, helping with the digestive and excretory system, galingale, calling for integrity and keeping the internal flesh, tomato, helping with skin and hair. Lemongrass and Cucumber Help with excretion, etc.
Chickens that are the produce of the farm Will start to practice to prepare for the ring at the age of 7-8 months.
Khun Somkid said that the gamecock is not always ready to fight. Because gamecocks will have a period of time to shed feathers or change feathers many times in the year. Chickens that have shed or shed feathers cannot be rammed. because the chicken will have less energy Because it runs out of energy to shed new hair and build a complete body. which the time when the chicken is not perfect enough for entering the ring It is the resting time and the breeding of the chickens. In addition, the cocks that have been extracted semen for use in the mix can not be put into a fight. because it will be exhausted to be milked by semen
Mating in males 10 months and older with mating In females, age 10-12 months, ready to mix. The mix will allow the chicken to mix among themselves. and when the hen lays eggs will let the hens lay eggs naturally Once the chicks hatch for a week, they are separated into nursery cages.
When the chickens are 1 month old, they start vaccinating at the specified intervals of the Department of Livestock Development, which Khun Somkid said that vaccination is very important. For chickens raised in the farm system to prevent disease and loss
