Ayam Cemani

The Ayam Cemani is a breed developed from the selective breeding of a naturally occurring mutation of wild landrace chickens of Central Java.

This mutation is black hyperpigmentation called fibromelanosis (fibro). While the mutation had occurred sporadically in this landrace variety for centuries, steps were take to select towards an all-black bird in the early 20th century.

The defining characteristic of this breed is intense black coloring that make them completely black all the way to the bone.  The blackest birds are sought after in Asian countries for belief in their mystical and medicinal powers and ceremonial dishes
