MEET THE AYAM CEMANI CHICKEN

I taught i have eaten all the chickens till i met the AYAM CEMANI, the “BLACK CHICKEN“. It is often referred to as the Lamborghini of Poultry. The Ayam Cemani Chicken originates from Indonesia. It’s a rare breed of chicken, and you can probably see why it is so. Everything about it is black: plumage, beak, tongue, legs, toe nails, even its meat, bones, and organs! The only thing that is not black is it’s blood – though it comes in a very dark shade.

The word ‘Ayam’ means ‘chicken’ in Indonesian, and ‘Cemani’ translates as ‘completely black’ in Javanese.

They get their black coloring from a generic trait known as ‘fibromelanosis’.  Cemanis are not the only black birds. A few wild birds are naturally melanistic, meaning that due to genetic variations they have more pigment production in their feathers or skin.

Don’t ever make the mistake of under estimating this bird, because one chicken costs around $2,500!. With the Naira rate at ₦360 to a dollar that will be   ₦900,000 for one chicken. For comparison, 15 average chickens would cost you just $85, while other special breeds cost about $149, making the Ayam Cemani well-deserving of its nickname. This must be among the most expensive birds in the world.

For an average Nigerian i can imagine all the personal and family problems i can solve with one chicken. Meanwhile anyone who has eaten this chicken should let us know how it taste.
