3 or 6 Greenfire Farms Line Ayam Cemani Chicks (Straight Run)
Regular price$ 299.00
The rarest and most sought after chicken breed on the planet! Our Greenfire Farms Line Ayam Cemani we offer were first imported into the US and featured on Time Magazine in 2014 wearing million dollar jewelry. Ayam Cemani originate in Indonesia and have black feathers, black skin, black comb, black wattles, black flesh, black organs and black bones. This makes this breed one of the most beautiful chickens on the planet, hailing them as "The Lamborghini of Poultry."
In Indonesia, they are known for their mystical healing powers due to their black hyper-pigmentation. The hens lay a surprisingly abundant amount of eggs, 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. The birds pictured here are our breeding stock, and they were selected from many birds for their exceptionally black features. However, we cannot guarantee the distribution of black pigment in their offspring.
Our Ayam Cemani are cold & hot weather hardy, low maintenance, tame and easy to handle.
In 2014, Ayam Cemani were first legally imported into the United States, despite the current USDA export ban on importing birds from Indonesia. We have high quality unrelated breeding pens of Ayam Cemani that should produce healthy and beautiful chicks for many generations to come. The birds featured here on our website are some of our breeding stock and were selectively chosen for their exceptionally dark black features. Some of our customers have claimed first place blue ribbon prizes at poultry show competitions with their Ayam Cemani chicks they received from us.
If you want to own the rarest chicken breed on the planet, look no further.

Quick Chick FAQs:
Straight Run Chicks:Straight Run Chicks are un-sexed, randomly selected and each chick has a 50/50 chance of being a male or female. Example: Flip a coin. Heads is a male chick and tails is a female chick. You will notice it is easier to flip the coin on the same side 3 times in a row than 6 times in a row. Ordering more than 3 chicks gives you a much better chance of an even ratio of male and female chicks.
What I Need:Everything you need can usually be purchased at your local feed store. Chick starter feed, waterer, brooder (cardboard box, plastic storage bin, bathtub, or even a kiddie pool are popular), pine shavings, thermometer and a heat lamp or heat source. Baby chicks require heat of about 95 degrees their first week of life. Second week you can lower the temperature to 90 degrees and so on with every week going down 5 degrees until 6-8 weeks old or when they are ready to go "outside".
How Do My Chicks Survive Shipment?:Baby chicks do not need food or water for the first 72 hours of life. Ingesting their yolk sac gives them the nutrition they need to survive the journey from Feather Lover Farm's hatching facility to you! Shipping day-old chicks helps ensure a safe arrival since they will usually be just 2 days old when you receive them. Our packaging is professional with a brand new chick shipping box, nesting material and warm long lasting heat packs depending on the time of the year. Your chicks will look like they just hatched out of a nest when you open the box and jump into your arms, thinking you are their mother hen!
When Will I Receive My Chicks?:Feather Lover Farms literally has to count our chicks before they hatch! Buying extremely rare baby chicks is not like buying products off the shelf. It is difficult to precisely predict egg production and hatch rates each week when dealing with very small numbers of extremely rare chickens. Our chicks hatch & ship every single week, year round, based in the order received. Your chicks usually ship 1-2 weeks after purchase as there's always orders ahead of you needing to be filled but please know sometimes they can take longer to ship. Please be patient. If you request a specific week to receive your chicks, simply add the date or month you want them shipped during checkout and we will wait until at least that time to ship your chicks. Think of ordering extremely rare baby chicks less like a purchase and more like a reservation. We ship your chicks as soon as possible unless you request a specific month or date. You will receive an automatic email when your chicks ship with tracking info. We look forward to sending you some of the rarest chicks in the world!
