Rare All Black Chickens Even Have Black Meat, Bones

all-black-chicken-1.jpg

Because sometimes you want ALL dark meat, this are several shots of a rare Ayam Cemani Chicken of Indonesia. The birds are all black, every bit of them, except their blood. It kind of reminds me of Shadowmere from Skyrim. Man, I loved that horse. I might fire up the game tonight just so I can pet him. Ooooor ride him into battle against some giants. What? I need their toes to make health fortification potions!

Everything about it is black: plumage, beak, tongue, legs, toe nails, even its meat, bones, and organs! The only thing that is black is its blood - though it comes in a very dark shade.


They get their black coloring from a generic trait known as 'fibromelanosis'. I don't know why you'd want to eat something that's as black as a black hole, but don't ever make the mistake of slaughtering it for a quick snack, because one chicken costs around $2,500!

Good lord, $2,500 for a single chicken? I could get you a real-life Pheonix for that much. Plus Pheonixes are even better because they cook themselves. Just make sure to eat the whole bird quickly, because that f***er's gonna be pissed if it's time to rise from the ashes and you've already eaten a wing and thigh.

Keep going for several more shots including one of what you'd expect to find at your local grocery store's meat counter.

Thanks to my buddy Argumus, who agrees $2,500 will get you a shit-ton of regular pink-slime chicken nuggets.

    I'm thinking... it's a beautiful bird, although not really black, having awesome tones of blue and purple in it's plumage. And I don't think I would eat one, the meat looks a little too different, and besides, it's a beautiful (and expensive) bird. And then... I read thru the other posts and wonder what the crap any of those posts have to do with the story here. What a bunch of morons and losers, that apparently will use any platform to get their lame ass excuse for a coherent thought posted.

    Wow...I think it's interesting that merely discussing black chickens has given rise to such topics as racism, cannibalism, lewd sexual innuendos and even video game storylines. Humans...are interesting. The price of freedom was paid for the American's, and this is how they use it. Well...you never truly value something until it is lost...enjoy the freedom to build or destroy, my friends. Enjoy, just remember, the bed we make in the morning is the same bed we return to in the night...unless we attend a crazy college party...

    There is a regular chicken that has black meat. It is called a silkie and it doesn't taste very nice. I would imagine that this one would taste the same. Rich people just buy it because of the difference in taste, not the fact that the difference makes it taste better. Chickens lay enough eggs a year to make these chickens cost the same as regular chickens pretty soon. But they would keep the breeding down to keep the costs up.

    Black eggs????

    "The only thing that is black is its blood - though it comes in a very dark shade''

    I hate to be that guy but I think you mean that isn't black is its blood

  • Brian Dyba

    this appears to be a different chicken than the black ones in the stores. Those are called Silkies and are also commonly used as brood hens in backyard chicken coops. they also make good pets, I have 2 of them

  • CaliNative

    The important question that nobody else asked yet, is... Do they poop black?

  • Helen Griffin

    Actually, the white component of bird shit (and yes, that is the correct term) is urine. (the dark part is actually the shit) birds muscles contract as they take off to fly, and force out any waste (together) to lighten the bird in flight).. since the chickens have darker blood, chances are the chicken shit is also darker (as a point of reference, sheep make dag, insect frass, --almost every creature's waste has its own name...)

  • HocusPocus

    Wait that's actually a good question..

  • Helen Griffin

    They are $4.99 a lb, (vs $3.79 for regular chickens) in the local chinese grocery store...(not $2500!) and there are dozens for sale, every week, so i guess they aren't all that rare!. (Flushing, NY)

  • John Sheffield

    I think it is like how many prize animals used for breeding are more valuable than the run-of-the-mill food animals.

  • I've made Chinese soup with them. It's pretty delish.

  • Paul

    Beautiful. Not sure I would eat one, I think they are beautiful.

    To illustrate how indoctrinated we are into the dominant, meat-eating, prejudicial view of animals, consider how even so-called “conscious carnivores” use the word “meat” while never even thinking there might be a problem with it. First, note the basic biological fact that we too are animals composed of flesh, bones, cartilage and blood, but note that we do not refer to human bodies as “meat,” but as corpses.

    The word “meat” intentionally strips animals of their identity and value beyond the commodification of their flesh.

    “Meat” turns a non human someone into a “thing” to be consumed.

    “Meat” is the objectification of a someone who had a lifetime of experiences and a mind that evolved to function well in complex ecosystems, finding the right mate, building shelters, giving birth, finding and storing food for her family, raising and educating her young, negotiating and communicating with others in intricate social groupings, forming bonds, friendships and maybe even enemies, learning from past experiences and anticipating future events, expressing likes, dislikes, pains, pleasures, loves and losses.

    “Meat” is a word that functions much like the word “slave” in how it defines someone as a piece of property to be exploited for someone else’s gain.

    “Meat” is a word that expresses an ingrained human prejudice against certain species and the baser side of our nature of dominating those who are weaker.
