What was the man's surprise when never-before-seen chicks hatched! The color of the Black chicken or the Ayam Cemani is due to a dominant gene that causes hyperpigmentation, a mutation called fibromelanosis. Black chickens lay black eggs, have black feathers, beak, and internal organs.

Because of their unusual genetics, these chickens immediately gained the attention of farmers around the world. Black-colored birds had not come to Europe until the 1990s.
