Ayam Cemani Chicken

This special chicken is native to Indonesia. The albino animals are special due to their lack of melanin, and resulting light visual appearance. In contrast, the Ayam Cemani Chicken is pure black due to a mutant fibromelanistic gene – a gene that deposits excessive black pigment throughout the body. Unlike animals with albinism, this gene does not appear to cause complications with eyesight and the Ayam Cemani is a strong and healthy breed.
