Any Ayam Ketawa (Ayam Gaga) Breeders In The US?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I'd like to know if there are any breeders out there that have imported the Ayam Ketawa or Ayam Gaga into the US.

I contacted Greenfire and they are toying with the idea but it probably won't be until late 2012 aor 2013.  For those who don't know, they are a black chicken, with black comb, feet, beak and legs.

Greenfire sells their birds highly expensive. I'd rather purchase a few Laughing Cockerels (Ayam Ketawa) for a much cheaper price.

Just be patient. If they do import them--they'll be all the rage and super-expensive for a year or two. Then the market will be become saturated and you can get them for $10/dozen on eBay for hatching eggs--just like the Coronation Sussex. wink

I think it will take a short time honestly, but in that time it will be hard to find them. For example if they got a longcrowing breed, they'd be neat sure and expensive yes, but VERY few people would actually want them, so when they get kicked off the list, good luck finding the few and far between people who actually got some before they left Greenfire. It's sadly the truth - Only the cool colors of common breeds seem to make it well, such as Sussex and Orpingtons. I'm sure Legbars will do well too though.

At least, that's my two cents smile
