Feather Lover Farms is excited to announce, in 2016 we were able to locate and acquire in the U.S. a new Ayam Cemani bloodline!
The rarest and most sought after chicken breed on the planet! Our Feather Lover Farms Line Ayam Cemani we offer were first released to the public in early 2017. Ayam Cemani originate in Indonesia and are known to have black feathers, black skin, black comb and wattles, black flesh, black organs, black bones and all. 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 were selected from many Ayam Cemani birds for their exceptionally black features. However, it is important to understand that not all Ayam Cemani offspring grow up to be solid black, even with solid black parents. We cannot guarantee the distribution of black pigment in the offspring you receive as each chick will turn out different.
Ayam Cemani are usually cold & hot weather hardy, low maintenance, tame and easy to handle.
Not only is our Feather Lover Farms Ayam Cemani bloodline consistently darker than our Greenfire Farms Line, they seem to be larger, stand taller and have larger combs.
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!
