300,000 Baht Dowry Paid at Cock-Hen Wedding



CHONBURI — A rooster and a hen tied the knot in Chonburi province today, a union that their owners hope will produce talented birds for cockfighting tournaments.

The wedding, which took place in a village in Ban Bueng district this morning, was modeled after a traditional Thai wedding with monks' prayer, wedding parade, and dowry.

The “groom,” a rooster called Yod Makham, is an experienced gamecock that has never lost a match, said his owner, Weerachai Charunet. Weerachai, 54, estimated that Yod Makham is worth at least one million baht.

The rooster first met his “bride,” Dok Mai Fai, when he defeated her in a cockfighting match two years ago, said Dok Mai Fai's owner, Saman Thongkam, 40. Upon seeing the rooster's skills, Saman said he immediately wanted to breed the two birds.

i wonder what the chickens will do with all this money

Thai dowry, however, is usually symbolic in nature and will normally be returned to the married couple after the wedding, so as to help them start on their new life.
