These Laughing Roosters Are Worth Thousands Of Dollars

Feb 10, 2015
Here's something you don't hear every day: a laughing rooster. This rare breed of chicken, from Indonesia, is called the Ayam Ketawa. Formerly only owned by the royal family, Indonesia now allows anyone to raise and train these roosters.

The birds have delicate health, and must be provided with a special diet and two cage cleanings a day. Breeders enter their roosters in contests, where the roosters' laughs are analyzed and scored by a group of judges. These chickens are highly prized possessions, and winning roosters are worth tens of thousands of dollars.
