    Background: A beauty contest with a difference was held in Thailand last weekend (Sunday February 20) -- for the contestants were all fighting roosters. The rules of the contest -- to find "Mr. Rooster 1972" -- were strict. All bird had to be genuine Thai, and cross-breeds were rejected. The owners took it seriously too -- preening and grooming their birds before judging, when points were awarded for health, shape, and deportment.
