The Laughing Cock Contest in Jakarta, Indonesia

Formerly only owned by the royal family, Indonesia now allows anyone to raise and train these roosters. Contestants were divided into four categories; a category for novice chickens under the age of 1, a category for chickens with a routine or crowing sound, a category for chickens with a unique sound and a category for chickens and a category for chickens with low voices, and these chickens are seen as the most prestigious and most expensive.

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.
