Meet Ayam Cemani, An Exotic Chicken Breed of Indonesia That Is Black From Inside Out

A chicken breed that is 100% black, from feathers to organs? Many of us don’t believe that this exotic creature exists. But it does, humans. It’s a rare and beautiful chicken breed of Indonesia named Ayam Cemani, referred to as the “Lamborghini of poultry.”

Ayam Cemani is black from the inside out, making it one of the most unique and mysterious breeds on the planet. This chicken has black feathers, black skin, black comb, black flesh, black organs, and black bones!

Regarding the striking black appearance, this breed has a mutant fibromelanistic gene that causes the excessiveness of black pigment. And, this makes the skin and tissues black.

Despite its rare beauty, Ayam Cemani is a friendly bird that is easy to handle.

Ayam Cemani is a medium-sized bird. Roosters and hens weigh 4.5-6.5lb and 3.5-4.5lb respectively. The hens lay about 60 to 100 cream-colored eggs their first year. But they will stop laying for three to six months.

In Asia, Ayam Cemani is known as a symbol of wealth and social status. This spectacular chicken breed also has magical powers that are said to connect the living and the spirit world. It’s used as a sacrificial bird to please the gods.

Additionally, the charcoal-colored blood and other parts of the bird used to be added to traditional medicine preparations.
