Just like people, chickens – especially rare breed chicks, come in all different colors and sizes. This chicken is black and beautiful. Their beak, wattle, tongue, comb, feathers, and bones are black. Even their muscles are black!
Why are these chickens black? They have a gene that makes them black: hyperpigmentation (hyper = too much, pigmentation = color). It means that when you see an Ayam Cemani roaming in your yard, you’ll see deep shades of black that glisten in the sun and reflect back with beautiful greens and purples. Since they’re always dressed in black, the Ayam Cemani is always ready for an elegant party. How neat is that?
The Ayam Cemani is entirely black – even their bones and muscles. Talk about a rare breed!
