We will not be offering Ayam Cemani chicks or eggs at all in 2020. We will start selling and shipping this breed again in spring of 2021. We are however still selling our Peafowl chicks and eggs in 2020 if interested in those.

Ayam Cemani Chickens. Our homestead farm flock consists of several top quality solid black birds. This is not a cross breed. Our foundation stock is from the richer black lines several top US breeders brought in from Indonesia and then took several yrs of selective breeding to get the coloring as rich black as possible throughout. If you have had this breed before from another line you will notice ours when compared are larger, stand taller and have bigger combs, and consistently are blacker pigmented. Many of our past chicks have received blue ribbons for the quality that years of selective breeding has created.

 Ayam Cemani originate in Indonesia and are known to be black through out their bodies… black feathers, black skin, black comb and wattles, black flesh, black organs, black bones and all. The only thing that is not black is their blood, although it is much darker than average chicken blood. Their feathers are black as black can be with iridescent blues, like an oil slick, to the feathers in sunlight. This makes this breed one of the most beautiful chickens on the planet, hailing them as “The Lamborghini of Poultry.” The rarest and most sought after chicken breed on the planet!

In Indonesia, the all black chicken is known for their mystical healing powers due to their black hyper-pigmentation. The hens lay about 80-120 eggs each year. Their eggs are unusually large proportion compared to the hen’s body, making them a low feed cost breed with excellent egg laying capability. Although this is an all black bird and our breeding stock the blackest of black show quality birds, it is important to understand that not all Ayam Cemani offspring grow up to be solid black, even with solid black parents you will get throw backs with colored or diluted undertones in the feathering from time to time. We cannot guarantee the distribution of black pigment in the offspring you receive as each chick will turn out different.

Hatching eggs: We do sell eggs on occasion. When we do they are $20 each. minimum order of 6 eggs. shipping is $20 which includes insurance. We do not deal with insurance claims. so if you have broken eggs you will need to contact USPS to get your insurance paid to you. We will text you a photo of your receipt at shipping. Shipping Priority mail lower 48 states only. Because of the fragile nature of embryos and the many things that cause unseen damage during shipping such as temps, jostling, and x-rays, we do not guarantee they will develop for you. In my opinion chicks are safer way to go, but we will ship you eggs if you like.

Day old Chicks: Chicks leave within 24 hrs of being hatched and ship EXPRESS USPS MAIL. Express mail can be 1 day or 2 day depending on your zip code.  Damaged or dead chicks: During transport or shipping chicks can get shaken, over heated, frozen, lost for days, etc… We do not replace or refund for chicks that are lost, damaged, or die along route to your home. If you loose a certain amount of chicks during shipping I believe post office may allow you to submit a claim with their insurance but that is totally up to you to do. Open chick box at Post Office when they call you to come pick them up so they can see if there are any losses or damaged chicks. Take photos of everything and also submit your claim with the receipt photo I will send you when I send you your chicks.

I ship chicks with 3 or more in box for warmth and added grow gel for them to snack on.

We never refund any payments: so if you change your mind you loose your money. If something happens and we can not fill your order before cold weather sets in then your order will be shipped the following spring.
