Description

The breed originated from the island of Java, Indonesia and has probably been used for centuries in religious and mystical purposes. The breed was first described by Dutch colonial settlers and first imported to Europe in 1998 by Dutch breeder Jan Steverink. Their beak and tongue, comb and wattles, even their meat bones and organs appear black. The blood of the Ayam Cemani is normally colored. The bird’s black color occurs as a result of excess pigmentation of the tissues, caused by a genetic condition known as fibro melanosis. This gene is also found in some other black fowl breeds. Roosters can get some mulberry upon maturity due to testosterone and other influences. The hens lay cream-colored eggs, although they are poor setters and rarely hatch their own brood. Our Ayam Cemani’s bloodline includes Raven and some Greenfire.

30% will have white color leakages in tongue, mouth and toes.

We cannot guarantee the distribution of black pigment on chicks.

    I just got my chicks! Healthy and happy babies! From here, it’s up to me! Thank you so much!!!

  2. Robert Cook

    I ordered 6 of the Cemani for delivery in mid April 2023 for my first cousin in central Texas. All six arrived healthy and in good shape.

    Here recently, much to our disappointment, she recently discovered she had 5 males and one female. But we understand its impossible to sex chicks at this age.

    Unfortunately, she lost two males earlier in the month, due to fighting. In fact, she recently lost two more males, due to fighting.

    She has 1 male and 1 female left. Our fingers are crossed they breed, because both are solid black!

    Fingers crossed! Everything that Cackle promised came true. I will order more birds next year to send to her!

    Keep up the good work!

    I ordered 7. They’re about 12 weeks. 5 cockerels 2 pullets. 3 of the cockerels with white feather leakage – one all black but with mulberry tones on earlobes and one all black a crinkled comb. One pullet looks All black at this point. The other pullet with a pink tongue. A lot of “leakage”. Lucky for me – my in laws are only interested in black meat for “medicine” soup. Unlucky for my wallet because I could have gone with silkies.

    Shipping was fine – the all arrived alive. I ordered 3 black female australorps After I made this initial order and they all came together. Had to pay separate shipping. They did throw in 2 extra australorps. Which I’ve been reading is standard practice to add extra. I wish they threw in some extra Cemanis since almost all of them have leakage.

    Other places will charge $100/$150 a chick. You might have to go with that option if you’re planning on getting into breeding or want a nice specimen of the breed. If you want pets or medicine meat. Order from here since you’ll be culling most of your purchase anyways.

      Oh no so sorry to hear that. As stated on website possible white on wings, though rare, is normal and always go black by first molt and 30% will have white color leakages in tongue, mouth and toes.
      We cannot guarantee the distribution of black pigment on chicks.

  4. Krystyn Andrews

    Very disappointed with Cackle! I bought 8 Ayam Cemanis and 1 has White thru out the neck and wings, (I sent them photos its clear as day)
    and getting more daily. They told me they couldn’t guarantee the all black bird sorry! Wow really I spend $49.99 for a bird I can’t use for reproducing (hes a Roo and will now ruin every egg he fertilizes) because the breed is all black and if a 4h or ffa student has white in an All Black bird they’ll be disqualified. $400.00 and all they had to say was Sorry!
