    This guy on ebay is selling 2 eggs for $39 = $15 shipping -or-
    4 eggs for $59 -or- 6 eggs for $79. He sold some already, and I just hate to see people getting ripped off. It's just, they aren't all black. They don't look anything like the birds on feathersite. I know people on here are very knowledgeble, maybe I'm wrong & these are purebred. Please let me know, thanks.

    I agree. They may have some of that breed in them, but they definitely are NOT purebred Ayam Cemanis. The of the most deeply prized aspects about that breed is that they are all black, down to the skin. That rooster's comb and feathers are red, the hens have various browns, golds and reds, and it's all-around a bit of a mess.

    That's what i was thinking. I contacted him stating they did not look like true ayam cemani due to their coloration, and gave him the feathersite link and his response was "not true, however, thanks."

    Thanks for your input, I appreciate it.

    I think these are birds of the Luikse Vechters breed. Pretty birds!

    those aren't even close! they may have some mixed in them but clearly not as advertised. If I spent THAT much on an egg it had better be what is claimed so I would be REALLY mad if I was the purchaser.... you might want to report that guy to ebay... because those aren't right.

    Those birds are definetly not purebred. Send the guy a picture of a real Cemani. (Just make sure he doesn't use it) Whatever they are, theyre pretty... Just not Cemani.
