    Hello All,
    I am organizing a rooster crowing contest for our county fair this summer and am looking for some advice. I am organizing it because I think every fair should have one, but I need some information as to any specific rules.

    All I know right now is that you put the roosters in cages and count how many times each one crows in the span of 20 minutes. Owners are allowed to entice their rooster to crow, but what are they and are they not allowed to do? Can they use flashlights to simulate the sun coming up?

    Any info about a rooster crowing contest is appreciated. What have been your experiences?

    Hi, ours are 30 min. long and it's pretty much anything goes as long as you don't touch the bird.
