Most popular reasons for dubbing
Dubbing roosters is a procedure most often used on show birds to give a clean healthy appearance to the birds and birds which are used in illegal cockfighting to prevent the rooster's from grabbing each others combs while they fight, and other roosters are dubbed for health reasons.
Dubbing roosters and hens for health reasons
Some people dub their roosters and hens to prevent bacterial infections, to remove frostbitten combs, wattles, and earlobes in an effort to prevent the frostbitten parts from spreading and developing bacterial infections. Some people trim only the comb, if it is too large and obstructing their birds eyesight.

The process of dubbing does not appear to be painful to the birds if done correctly but there is a considerable amount of bleeding during the process. If dubbing is done incorrectly the bird will bleed to death.
