We are used to seeing albino animals or animals with a stage or unseen feature but have you ever seen a goth chicken? Yes, you heard it right there exists a chicken who is pitch black from head to toe.
This type of chicken is called Ayam Cemani and is an indigenous- Indonesian chicken breed. According to a very noted Ayam Cemani breeder, he explained that this blackness is caused by genetics, a mutation to be exact.
He explained that this type of chicken “produces about ten times as much melanin [black pigment] as you’ll find in a normal chicken.” As a result, Ayam Cemani’s feathers shine with iridescent greens and purples for a “riveting” effect.
This rare and unique chick has a rich past history Centuries ago, the Indonesian Island of Java kept the birds as part of rituals. They were given a spiritual status and thus, never eaten.
1.This chicken is pitch black inside and out. Her rare figue was prised to be a mythical bird in the past.
Even though this breed is somehow illegal to import still the breeders managed to bring this kind to the USA
There’s also a unique and rare impression the chicken makes. In bright sunlight, the black is iridescent with greens and purples. The effect is riveting. You can understand why native Indonesians attribute mystical power to these birds.”
