Ayam Cemani's are one of the most sought-after chicken breeds on the planet! Ayam Cemani originate in Indonesia and are known to have black feathers, black skin, black comb, black wattles, black flesh, black organs and darker bones. This is why they are some of the most special and beautiful chickens on the planet, hailing them as "The Lamborghini of Poultry."
Pictured here are the mom and dad of our current flock. Over the past five years we have selectively bred our Ayams for health and darkness, which is why our Ayam Cemani chicks are some of the darkest and most beautiful available.
In Indonesia, they are known for their mystical healing powers due to their black hyper-pigmentation. They are considered to give their owners extremely good luck.
The hens lay a surprisingly abundant amount of about 120 eggs each year. Their eggs are unusually large proportion compared to the hen's body, making them a low feed cost breed with excellent egg laying capability.
Our Ayam Cemani are fairly cold & hot weather hardy, low maintenance, tame and easy to handle. They also are more difficult for predators to see at night. Please note - their eggs are not black - they are cream/tan colored. But everything else is black - they don't even have white in their eyes!
*Please note that it takes 3 to 6 weeks to process your order* We are a small, 100% solar hatchery and have to use electricity sparingly. Because of this and our commitment to raising some of the finest chickens in the world - orders can take up to 6 weeks before they are shipped. Thank you in advance for your patience.
Live birds can only be shipped using USPS Priority Express which reaches most local post offices overnight. Your birds must be picked up from the local Post Office as quickly as possible to ensure your new babies are safe. Shipping is additional and generally ranges from $25 to $75 depending on where you live and how many chicks you order. We're currently only shipping within the continental United States.
Our Live Chick Guarantee only applies if you order 6 or more chicks. This is because we believe that 6 chicks is the ideal number of bodies to keep the little guys safe. (Enough fluff for padding and enough bodies for heat). An explanation of this guarantee as well as answers to all of the most frequently asked questions can be found at this link: Frequently Asked Questions
We know you'll LOVE your baby Ayams! :)
