Who is the rarest and most sought after chicken breed on the planet?…Ayam Cemani Chickens of course! They originate in Indonesia and have most everything black; feathers, skin, comb and wattles, flesh, organs, black bones and all…wow! This makes this chicken breed one of the most beautiful chickens on the planet, hailing them as “The Lamborghini of Poultry.” We like to think of them as a gothic and cool/hip chicken breed that are also beneficial!

In Indonesia, they are known for their mystical healing powers due to their black hyper-pigmentation. Ayam Cemani is a melanistic breed, which means an overdevelopment of melanin. Their ink-black feathers shimmer with a metallic sheen of beetle green and purple. The Ayam Cemani are friendly birds, and the hens lay about 60 to 80 cream-colored eggs their first year, after that it can increase to 60-120. A typical laying cycle lasts for about 20 to 30 eggs, then the hen will stop laying for three to six months., they are not continuous layers. They are a real eye candy here on the farm, and definitely are higher up in the flock hierarchy. They are an intelligent breed, ours coming up to us begging for attention, treats, or just company. They are typically easy going and some of our hens have been excellent mothers to their  or other offspring. We would say they do well in all temperatures, thriving more in hotter climates –  cold protection of the combs and wattles is strongly recommended and if you choose, supplemental heat in the winter. Since our stock is acclimated to the Vermont climate they do well in all temperatures.

 

Feed Recommendations: we recommend starting baby chicks out with Sugar Feather Farm chick starter for the first 3 weeks, then switch to our Chicken Grower. Use the Grower Feed until they hit maturation (which is when they start to lay) then switch to Sugar Feather Farm Adult Feed

We highly recommend using the Oil of Oregano in their water daily as a supplement to aid with digestion and overall health.

 

In addition, our stock is the result of many years of selective breeding and occasional introduction of quality Ayam Cemani from breeders across the country, one is Daylily Acres a local Vermont breeder We work to produce birds with straight combs, high fibro showing, and a gamier appearance.  Our breeding program strives to produce birds that meet the proposed standard of perfection as described by the Ayam Cemani Breeders Association.  Having said that, there may be birds that grow out with imperfections.  We can’t guarantee a perfect bird ever!

It is also important to understand that not all Ayam Cemani offspring grow up to be solid black, even with solid black parents. We cannot guarantee the distribution of black pigment in some the offspring you receive as each chick will turn out different. Our breeding program is in process so we are always perfecting our flock and aiming towards the working Standard. We are part of the Ayam Cemani Breeders Association and do our best to follow the guidelines. This takes time and lots of dedicated hard work. A few babies have, like we said above, possible white nails and toes (this can go away as they get older). When you choose to select eggs for incubating, this will definitely hold true.

 

Pre-ordered adults and hatchlings may be picked up by appointment. To safeguard our birds from exposure to disease brought in by visitors, in accordance with the provisions of the National Poultry Improvement Plan, areas where birds are kept are off limits. However you are welcome to look at all the breeds and interactions, it is a site to see.
