The farmer was curious about what will hatch from absolutely black eggs! The result was amazing…
Each of us has seen chicken with black plumage. But few people saw absolutely black chickens.
One day, a farmer saw a photo of black chicken eggs and thought it was a joke or that the eggs were just dyed. But it turned out that black eggs actually exist and are carried by a rather decorative breed of black chicken. Have you heard about this chicken breed? By the way it is called “Ayam tsemani”.
Representatives of this breed have black not only plumage, but also claws, paws, comb, beak, skin, bones and even meat. And they also lay black eggs. There were rumors that black chicken’s blood is black as well, but this is a real fiction.
The black plumage of these chicken has a metallic sheen, which looks very beautiful and unusual.
Once in the USA, large chicken of this breed were highly valued and sold at a good price. An adult chicken of this breed could be purchased for an average of $2,500.
The reason of the black colour of the chicken lies in the fibromelanosis gene. With the dominance of this gene in the body, hyperpigmentation occurs which is responsible for the black color of chicken.
They were first brought to Europe in 1990, and their native country is Indonesia. In the homeland of “Ayam Tsemani” people thought they have “mystical” superpowers, but all these are just empty rumors spread by people, so you should not believe in their authenticity.
And now look at the photographs with these amazing and mysterious chicken. Interesning, isn’t it?
