Description:

The Ayam Cemani chicken breed has a gorgeous, shadowy black brilliance that makes them unique and highly desired! They have a friendly and calm personality and make a great addition to a backyard flock.  


Egg Color and Production: Not the greatest layers, Ayam Cemanis are known to lay steadily for weeks and then take several months off before beginning to lay again. They typically lay two cream-tinted eggs per week.  

Appearance: Ayam Cemanis were once considered sacred because of their body's black pigment: feathers, comb, beak, skin, wattles, internal organs, meat, and bones (their blood is not black, however).

This hyperpigmentation is caused by a genetic condition known as fibromelanosis. Their haunting look is thankfully paired with a friendly, gentle personality. 

Please be aware that the distribution of black pigmentation is not guaranteed in any offspring because the breed, not yet recognized by the APA, can show recessive genes from its Kedu ancestor relatives. Therefore, there may be mulberry-colored leakage in the combs, wattles, ears, and white-color leakage on the tongue, mouth, and toes.

Benefits of Purchasing Pullets

  • Started pullets are an excellent option for people who don't have the time, equipment, or desire to care for chicks.
  • These juvenile chicks are sexed twice, once at hatch and again at six weeks old, which reduces your chance of ending up with roosters.
  • The minimum order is just 2 chicks!

Additional Pullet Information

  • Our six-week started pullets are floor-raised and socialized with humans, and their beaks are intact--we never trim.
  • Please keep your 6-week-olds quarantined from your existing flock for four or more weeks, and take care when introducing them.
  • Check out our Started Pullets Care Guide.
