Video About A Farmer Who Raises Those All-Black Chickens (Including Their Bones And Organs)

April 5, 2018

Ditto, buddy.

This is a video highlighting Indonesian farmer Wira Cusuma, who raises Ayam Cemani chickens, which all "possess a dominant gene called fibromelanosis, which creates hyper-pigmentation down to the animal's bones. The bones are black, as are the chicken's beak, feet, crown and organs." We previously posted some pictures of Ayam Cemani chickens HERE. Apparently demand is even higher for the chickens now (which some believe are bad luck, and other believe are a sign of spiritual protection), which can fetch as much as $700 - $1,400 apiece. Are you thinking what I'm thinking? "Luxury nuggets." Okaaaaay, no you weren't.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to K Diddie, who agrees clear chickens are going to be the next big thing.

    If you click on the HERE in the story that links to the article from 2014, make sure you read through the comments. They go about exactly as you'd assume they would.

    Article doesn't say that. It just says organs and extremities.

  • Guesticle

    found a picture it's sort of brownish greyish more than black like the skin and bones https://usercontent2.hubstatic.com/11852597_f520.jpg

    looks a bit like somebody tossed regular chicken meat with ink trying to fake it.

    these are fairly small chickens.

    such a joke would make little sense, but yet they are not so little as to invoke absurdity. no, these alleged jokes cannot support themselves with that path either.

  • Guesticle

    also that is a hen, you can see when he lifts it. this breed just happens to also develop combs on the females, like how sometimes cows have horns
