    I want to share a kind of unique chicken from my country. It called as a laughing chicken. And here in indonesia we call this chicken as a "ayam ketawa". Anybody knows this chicken...? When this rooster crows it needs 5 to 20 second to finish its crow. And its voice sounded like a mans laughing. Next time i will post the picture.

    It sounds very similar to a breed known as 'long crower'.

    There is another thread on here somewhere that was started asking about these birds! Can I assume you are in Indonesia? We would love to have some of those birds over here. There are some clips on YouTube that shows the crows of these birds, and it does indeed sound like laughter. [​IMG] Danis, I will look forward to seeing some of your birds!
    Here is the link to the other thread with sound clips and videos
