About Ayam Cemani ChickensAbout Ayam Cemani Chickens

Ayam Cemani is an uncommon and relatively modern breed ofrnchicken from Indonesia. Ayam means "chicken"" in Bahasa Indonesia.rnCemani refers to the village on the island of Java this breed originates. Theyrnhave probably been used for centuries for religious and mystical purpose. Theyrnwere first described by Dutch colonial settlers and first imported to Europe inrn1998 by the Dutch breeder Jan Steverink.

rnrnTheir beak and tongue, black comb and wattles; even theirrnmeat, bones, and organs appear black. However, their blood is normally colored.rnThe birds' black color occurs as a result of excess pigmentation of therntissues, caused by a genetic condition known as fibromelanosis. This gene isrnalso found in some other black fowl breeds.

rnrnThe roosters weigh 2-2.5 kg and the hens from 1.5-2 kg. Thernhens lay cream-colored eggs with a slight pink tint, although they are poorrnsetters and rarely hatch their own brood. Eggs weigh an average of 45 g.rnrn 

rnrnCurrently, they are kept in the Netherlands, Germany,rnSlovakia, Czech Republic, and the US. In the past individual birds in the US havernbeen priced at $2500.
