This is so funny. I was watching the LaCrosse News station last night and they were reporting on their local county fair. They had a fairly long segment on the different contests. The last part was the chicken show. They had video of a lot of very beautiful chickens with their ribbons on the cages, and a lot of crowing roosters, just like you see at every other show. They panned to a lot of different breeds so that was very exciting for me. A rosecombed bird got Second Grand of the show. (Not sure what breed) The reporter said that 'the LaCrosse fair had a rooster crowing contest to see whos rooster could crow the loudest'. I nearly fell off my chair laughing. And they were seriouse.
