Ayam Cemani

Also known as the 'rarest chicken on earth' the Ayam Cemani is truly an exquisite bird. They are intensely black from their feathers to their organs. Ayam Cemani's originated from Java, Indonesia within the village of 'cemani' where 'ayam' means 'chicken'. They resemble a gamebird in shape, light and compact. Cemani's weigh only 4-5lbs and lay cream colored eggs. We are always striving for the best breed representation possible however we cannot guarantee pigment distribution in Cemanis. Uneven distribution is normally manifested in white toes, stray white feather(s) and/or purple or red comb. We can't promise Cemani's will grow out to perfect breed representation because perfectly black chicks can develop these flaws into adulthood. Note: Between April 1st and October 1st, Mt. Healthy Hatcheries has a minimum shipping requirement of 3 birds (instead of the usual 10). If you order 3 chicks to ship outside of April 1st - October 1st, the order may be delayed or shipped with cockerels for warmth, as decided by Mt. Healthy Hatcheries.
Ayam Cemani produces 150 Cream eggs per year.
Chickens require a minimum quantity of 3 to ship, you may mix breeds of the same species.
Please understand every effort will be made to accommodate the ship date requested. If for some reason this is not possible you will be notified, and we will book for the next available date.
