NEW YORK STATE FAIR -- There was plenty of noise coming from the Poultry Building Monday morning.
The annual Rooster Crowing Championships were held in front of plenty of cheerful fairgoers. There were morning and afternoon contests that included the loudest roosters from the fair's daily crowing competitions.
The winning rooster in the morning contest crowed 56 times in 15 minutes. We spoke with the bird's owner.
"You gotta feed him, you gotta water him and you gotta watch him, watch him wait, to see what ones are crowing because Old English are territorial birds. So when they feel like they need to get new territory they crow a lot," Clayton Lounsberry said.
