Love having some unusual birds in your chicken coop? Then we've found the chicken breed for you. This rare Indonesian chicken is completely black, on the outside as well as on the inside.

If you have a thing for exotic looking chickens, you need to meet the Ayam Cemani. This Indonesian chicken is a rare breed, but you won't mistake it for any other. It's completely black, featuring feathers with a metallic sheen. Its skin is even black, they have black feathers and a black beak, and roosters have a black comb. But even more unusual? All of its internal organs and bones are black, too.

If you want an all-black Indonesian chicken for your own, be prepared to invest quite a bit. Greenfire Farms in Florida, which has managed to import the black-boned chickens to the United States and start a breeding program, lists prices between $199 and $400 per bird.

if you have a good breeding program, that initial outlay could be recuperated pretty quick. It's kinda tempting.

These came up in a conversation last week . The question came  “ even the eggs are black inside ? “ I of course found something to do ... quickly . an interesting point though so I’ll have to investigate even though I’m pretty sure of what I’ll find out ! 😉😂
