Breeding fighting cocks is a profitable business venture here in Negros Occidental, particularly in Bago City, Philippines.

Former Mayor of La Carlota City, Juancho Aguirre is one of these breeders who in his spare time go to his 6.4 hectare gamefowl farm in Brgy. Lunao, Bago City to supervise, monitor and attain to the needs of his several fighting cocks there. He started breeding fighting cocks in 1977. Since he's an agriculturist, he knows some technique in raising these gamefowls.
 
He started raising "greys" specie of chickens. His line game came from another former Mayor of the city, late "Nonoy" Jalandoni, who used to import "Duke Hulsey" line and the regular greys.

The greys have undergone a lot of in-breeding and crossbreeding all the years.

Gamefowl industry is good. Locally-bred chickens can fight the best in the world, told Aguirre. These gamefowls here are well-taken care of.

"Lemons" and "Greys" are the main bloodlines of these fighting cocks [roosters], that are maintained by Aguirre for more than 30 years now.
