Cock-fighting





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.
