A prized breed of chicken in many parts of the world is black. The Ayam Cemani’s feather’s aren’t the only thing black. Their skin, legs, toes, combs, muscles, organs and even the tongues are too.
Those who feast on the birds eat all-black meat. Ayam Cemani breeders are responsible for the dark colored birds and they all go to great lengths to make sure their birds are the deepest black.
Many people think the Indonesian chicken breed’s blood is black, but that’s not true. Their blood is one of the few things that isn’t the sinister shade, but the bodily fluid is darker in color than normal birds.
Ayam Cemanis lay approximately 60 to 80 eggs annually. As with anything rare, these chickens don’t come cheap.
The chickens sell on average for about 25 hundred dollars a piece. In early 2014, eight hatching eggs sold for nearly $1,400 on eBay.
