Cock-fighting






Category: BIRDS AND BEASTS.

Source: Welsh Folk-lore

Cock-fighting was once common in Wales, and it was said that the most
successful cock-fighters fought the bird that resembled the colour of the
day when the conflict took place; thus, the blue game-cock was brought
out on cloudy days, black when the atmosphere was inky in colour,
black-red on sunny days, and so on.

Charms for cocks have already been mentioned (p. 267). These differed in
different places. In Llansantffraid, Montgomeryshire, a crumb from the
communion table, taken therefrom at midnight following the administration
of the Holy Communion, was an infallible charm. This was placed in the
socket of the steel spur, which was then adjusted to the natural
spur.--Bye-Gones, vol. i., p. 88.
