Ayam Cemani Chicks is a rare breed of chicken that was imported by Greenfire Farms in 2014 from Indonesia. Our flock is directly from Greenfire’s stock.
Ayam Cemani Chicks are 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.
We currently have about a 2-3 week wait time for Ayam Cemani chicks. We will call to verify the delivery date before sending chicks.
