The Ayam Cemani is a unique breed of chicken that was imported by Greenfire Farms in 2014 from Indonesia. Our flock is directly from Greenfire’s stock.
The Ayam Cemani is a medium-sized bird that lays a comparatively large, cream colored egg. They are most known for their striking hyper-pigmentation. Their skin and feathers are solid black, their meat is black, and even their bones are black. However, Ayam Cemanis are not all about looks. They have a friendly temperament, go broody easily, and the hens are very protective of their eggs. Interestingly, we have never seen a rooster act aggressively toward anyone on our farm, even when we handle hens in their presence.
While they are only modest producers, laying around 80 eggs/year, these beautiful birds will make a strikingly unique addition to any farm or homestead.
These birds are sold straight run, meaning they are not sexed and separated. You will receive approximately 50% males and 50% females. The displayed price is per bird.
We hatch a small number of Ayam Cemani chicks each week. Preferred ship weeks are estimates, and we will do our best to meet your chosen date based on how many chicks hatch. If we don’t have enough chicks to fill your order, we will call to schedule a new ship date.
