The Gamefowl Beginnings of Negros Breeder Narwin Javelosa

There are definitely seasons in the lives of gamefowl breeders. Sometimes you are up and sometimes you are down. That is just the game. And the year 2010 had been a very good one to the breeding of Negrense sugar planter and former three-term Sagay City councilor Narwin Javelosa.

In that year alone, Javelosa had fifteen (15) straight wins in two consecutive stag derbies! And this record for his entry Chuckattack Wash Out NJRR got him the solo championship trophy of the 2010 GF-BAN 8-stag Derby and the co-championship of the 2010 NSSA 7-Stag Derby held September and October of that year.

This nice gentleman from Sagay City in southern Negros Occidental, Philippines was born into a family of sugar planters and fighting cock breeders. So it is no wonder why he got into both industries and balances both so gracefully.

Narwin formally started breeding while he was still single, which was in the early 80s, through the help of his cousin Elwin Javelosa—another planter-breeder. Elwin was the one who provided Narwin with his Cecil Greys and Dirty Greys. Narwin also got some of his first breeding materials from veteran Negros breeder Renato “Otic” Geroso, which mostly consisted of Greys and Lemons.

As he continued to expand his breeding at his 5-hectate gamefarm in Brgy. Bato, Sagay City, Narwin began acquiring more bloodlines from other known breeders. This widened his range of bloodlines and so he was able to experiment and cross different kinds. Thus he was able to produce battlecrosses to his liking.

In 2009, Narwin acquired a scenic 4.5-hectare lot in Brgy. Sta. Cruz, Murcia, eastern Negros Occidental, where his adult cocks are now fielded. Derby conditioning of his entries is also done here. A couple of years later, he purchased the adjoining 4-hectare lot, expanding his gamefarm to 8.5 hectares.

Narwin has so many breeding plans. He maintains the quality production in his farm while continuing to join derbies and selling his produce to interested buyers.

Aaron Gonzales and His Breeding History

During my visit last year to the farm of breeder Aaron “Bagyo” Gonzales, it was no joke when his handler Rex “Butch” Gonzales said that the game farm was in the sky. Or at least very near it.

Butch, who is also Bagyo’s nephew, picked me up at my place in order to drive me to the game farm that bred the winners of the team, Las Altas Mega Ono.

Located at Purok Las Altas, Barangay Alangilan, Bacolod City, going to the Gonzales game farm is literally like going up on a stairway to heaven. The concrete road ends at the barrio proper so the rest of the ride to the game fowl heaven is a bumpy one.

Bagyo shares that he had always been a farmer, planting rice and corn in this same area. A high school graduate, he tilled the soil and used his produce and earnings to support his growing family.

But the now-famous breeder is not new to the game of breeding and cockfighting. When he was a young boy, he used to go with his father Leopoldo whenever the latter would join hack fights (incero) in nearby villages. That was a long time ago and Bagyo has gone a long way from that.

In 1995, Bagyo Gonzales started working for the late Negrense breeder Generoso “Otic” Geroso. It was Otic who inspired, encouraged, and even provided the young Bagyo with materials and knowledge so that the latter can start breeding. Bagyo’s farm then became Otic’s satellite area. And Otic had used a lot of Bagyo’s produce in derbies.

Among Otic’s original lines that are now with Bagyo are the Sweater and Bruce Barnett. He has crossed them with Givens and the Ruble.
