Our team does not have much financial budget for grand facilities even adequate facilities. In fact we are living in a cardboard box right when we hatched and have dried and become fluffy.
The box is of low depth. An “X” was cut on top then the four triangles that are produced by the “X” cut is the door. A grill or screen is placed to close on the opening of the door for us not to escape and provide natural light.
The door will be closed as soon as we finished eating and need to rest. Closing the door provides us with much needed warmth as our bodies heat do not escaped much from inside the box. We do not need heater and that saves electricity. The air holes are not too large for us to freeze or chill.
The bottom of the box are laid with newspapers. Then topped with rice hulls or wood shavings. If only newspaper is available, it need so to be replaced everyday or twice a day.
We can keep living inside a box as long as we have enough room as we grow. A second box can be used as we grew older and our other team member chicks can be transferred to the second box. That will make more space for each of us.

For the year 2011, we are preparing for 10-stag derby. It will cost us $2090 to join including minimum bets per fight. The champion prize is $454,545.
It will be hard as we never competed in a stag derby. We competed mostly in hackfights where our team manager can chose which foes we will face. In derby matching is done by weight and is blind matching.
Some of our future players were hatched this January; good number of males enough for one team if all turned out to be exceptional.
The competition begins on September through December 2011. There will be 3000-5000 teams expected to compete.
