Rare All Black Chickens Even Have Black Meat, Bones

September 2, 2014


Because sometimes you want ALL dark meat, these 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.

    These aren't rare at all. They sell them in Chinatown for 15 bucks.

    I have eight at my little farm in Thailand. they are easy to raise. Old folks make chicken soup out of them for a cure all. I sell the chicks for 1,000 baht each. ($33.00).

  • You can obtain this bird for only $199 per chick...

    Apparently this bird is not extinct as I found a breeder. Expensive, yes. But at $100 for something this rare, I don't think it's a bad price. (go price some other rare poultry)

    Black silkies alaso have black meat. They are super friendly and they are not so expensive.

  • dindin Gerald

    My father raise this kind of animals and we are currently having 25-young black chickens. We are also selling it in negotiable price

  • butt

    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.
