Due to  a genetic trait known as ‘fibromelanosis‘, everything about the rare Indonesian Ayam Cemani chicken is black: plumage, beak, legs, feet, tongue, organs, bones and meat.

Everything except its blood, which is red. Very dark red.

They retail for €1,900 each.

The chicken has since received a substantial Arts Council grant.
