world-most-expensive-chickenHere in Nigeria, I have seen a lot of chicken colours but this special chicken breed is so different. I don’t know whether this kind of chicken exists in Nigeria. I Googled it to know more and even to know how much this black chicken costs. I saw pictures of this particular breed. Wonders shall never end in this world.

The breed is known as Ayam Cemani originating in Indonesia. It is a weird one. Everything in it is black from skin, bones, eyes, ears, combs, wattles even organs like liver, lungs and heart. A very special breed. Some say it is the best chicken meat in the world.

It’s among the most expensive chicken breeds in the world. A fully grown chicken could cost you $2500. Believe it or not. The blackness is due to a genetic trait known as fibromelanosis in which the cells tend to have too much melanin.The breed is so rare and that’s why it’s so expensive.
