Ayam Cemani otherwise translated by my iphone as I AM SOME MONEY...Coincidence??
Could the Ayam Cemani be the most coveted chicken on the globe? The boldly unique characteristics set them apart from all other species of the gallus family. This black bird is black, to the bone. Originally bred in captivity in Indonesia and only finding their way here a short while ago. It is documented that this Javanese fowl possesses many mystical powers and is used in ceremonial purposes. Last year we were the only farm to obtain and import them legally under the supervision of a USDA veterinarian. Our birds are a unique blend of several lines that we are adapting for our climate north of the border. Our breeding programs and partner farms will assist in producing some of the highest quality foundation stock for sale in North America. As a collaborative this will allow for import of other healthy birds and potential outcrosses such as the Kadaknath chicken. We cannot guarantee your hatch or the final distribution of the black pigmentation. We will guarantee fresh, clean, well packed hatching eggs, with extras if available. We have recently coined the term Cemani Scale for breeders to identify the colour of the breed. Our breeders range from 7-9. If you understand the Marans scale this should be simple, even for those who are colour blind.

What lovely chicks! I have so many questions. What colour are the eggs? Do you have more photos of your Ayam Cemani? If the hutch is heated, would they do okay in Prince George?

Thank you, Quynne. I was wondering because some Ayam Cemani are bred with birds that are more cold tolerant which can cause lighter eggs, and red innards. Very fascinating.
