​The breed is known as ayam cemani originating in Indonesia.It is a weird one.Everything in it is black from skin, bones, eyes, ears, combs, wattles even organs like liver, lungs and heart.

A very special breed.We don’t have it in Nigeria.

It’s among the most expensive chicken breeds in the world. A fully grown chicken could cost you $2000.

Believe it or not. The blackness is due to a genetic trait known as fibromelanosis in which the tissues tend to have too much melanin.


The breed is so rare and that’s why it’s so expensive.
