To call the Ayam Cemani the world’s rare chicken is a misinterpretation.. The black goth chicken is not only dark outside, but it’s completely all black including the bones.
Its internat organs and muscles are also inky colored. The eggs colored are a shade of cream.
But how does this happen? According Paul Bradshaw of Greenfire Farms, its because of genetics. “The mutation produces about ten times as much melanin [black pigment] as you’ll find in a normal chicken”.
The adorable chick.
