Well I just got off the phone with the guy that has the rare black chickens. He got them from an exterminator that told him black chickens are rare. They were a gift for a kid but they didn't want them.
He doesn't know anything about chickens and didn't realize there were different breeds. He just thought they came in colors. I guess like a macaw or parakeet.
When he finds out the breed, he'll call me back.
Updates to come.
I'm sorry, I just had to contact him.

Yes I did.
However, I just got a call back and he said they were Ayam Cemani. but not pure black. He said one was 80% AC and one was 90%,
He said he was going to drop the price since they're living in the house and has no where to keep them.
sounds like..blah-blah-..trying to get someone who doesn't know to pony-up their wallet...people will do & say anything for $$...
glad someone had a good-time with this guy...& got the "scoop" so to speak..
I like his avatar..hahaha

Thank you barbie...yeah, they have no problem finding the food dish..maybe if I try hiding it in the nest boxes they will get the hint...
They were having a "clean the fridge out" snack..hahaha...
I decided to lighten -up on the food (layer) , a little...as it is milder right now and I have been feeding well above the mark...going to see what this does...
Oh, to anyone wondering... the hot peppers haven't done much..obviously..been about a week with that concept and I am almost out of hot pepper seeds...not using my saved from the garden either!
DH asked if there was such a thing as "egg-strogen" for chickens??...hahaha, he can be amusing in his own mind sometimes....hahaha...

The little old lady says, "According to the picture on the box, it's a rooster."
Her neighbor decides to go over and help with the puzzle.
She lets him in and shows him where she has the puzzle spread all over the table.
He studies the pieces for a moment, looks at the box, then turns to her and says, "First of all, no matter what we do, we're not going to be able to assemble the pieces into anything resembling a rooster."
He takes her hand and says, "Secondly, I want you to relax. Let's have a nice cup of tea, and then," he said with a deep sigh, " let's put all the corn flakes back in the box."
i like that one!!...will be me in a few years.....
