The Spring Fair Gamefowl Farm, sometimes known as the Dink Fair Game Farm, is a breeding facility for chicks destined for cockfighting. It is owned by veteran cocker Albert “Dink” Fair and is located in Ringgold, Louisiana.
Fair grew up on a chicken farm and saw cockfighting when he was a child. Prior to enlisting in the US Army and going for Vietnam, he began raising game fowl, but it wasn’t until after his return that his reputation began to grow.
Fair is a well-known breeder, because to the wide range of birds that he raises. Fair raises White Hackle, Chocolate Grey, Kelso, Pussom, and Roundhead fowl, among others, and is best known for his Sweater fowl, which have golden legs, sleek bodies, and pumpkin-orange hackle feathers.
Fair is well-known for his ability in cross-breeding. For a year, one of his best cocks was partnered with a Radio-bred hen in one of his cross-breeding operations. The pair produced 40 chickens, which he competed in the Sunset Gentlemen’s Club’s Long Knife Derby in Lafeyette, Louisiana. The chickens had 36 victories, two defeats, and two ties.
Cockfighting is prohibited in all 50 states as of 2016. Louisiana was the final state to make the practise illegal in 2007. As a result, cockers like Fair must be cautious about how they promote their farms. Fair argues that he simply grows chickens and that he is not responsible for what his clients do with them after they buy them.
