Said to be possibly the most coveted chicken breed on the globe, the Ayam Cemani (Java Chicken) is a heritage breed with unusual pigmentation. They have a dominant gene that causes hyperpigmentation (Fibromelanosis), making the chicken entirely black; including feathers, beak, and internal organs. Consequently, they are highly prised for their eggs and for use in rituals and ceremonies. Considered magical, this chicken is understood since ancient times to have healing properties.
At 5eyesfarm we are aiming to breed this chicken for the eggs. The birds are not good brooders so we will be designing incubators. The chicken coup is 150 meters squared and is totally covered and secure. The birds have ample space to free range, are fed organics (corn, vegetables, grains) and they have excellent roosting quarters.
