This "mutation" selector explains the fact that the body of this rooster produces 10 times more melanin compared to conventional chickens. Because he's black even on the inside. "As a result, the feathers ayam cemani shimmer green and purple hues," says Paul.

Chicks of this species bred not to eat it. Here is almost sacred birds and bred for the preservation of these unique properties. The United States banned the import of live chickens from Indonesia.
