NEW YORK STATE FAIR -- It's hard not to notice these guys while at the fair. Rooster crowing contests have been underway during the fair, but Monday the state champion was chosen.
What does it take to win? The most number of crows. Officials say roosters crow naturally to attract hens and prove their strength and masculinity. Trainers use that natural skill while training.
"You study their characteristics, sometimes if you got them with hens, and you take them away, they'll crow, and the thing is they are territorial, so if you move them in a different area, sometimes they're claiming their territory," said rooster trainer Lou Smith.
