Ayam Cemani are a rare breed originating from Indonesia that are totally black and still quite rare in the UK… unlike the Welsummer which is fairly common and known for it’s very dark eggs:
The E eggs are from English Ayam Cemani stock and the G from German lines, giving two unrelated groups of AC eggs.
These are the best of over 270 photos taken…
The AC chicks are so black it’s hard to take a good photo!
They’ve either just a blur…
…or too shy to show themselves!
12 of each sort of eggs in the incy 18th February.
By day 17, 5 eggs removed leaving 8 Ayam Cemani and 11 Welsummer.
12-13 Mar 7 Ayam Cemani and 5 Welsummer hatched…
