    I've been debating on adding an ayam Cemani or two to my flock, does anybody know what color their eggs are?? I've seen things that say they lay dark almost black eggs and others say they lay cream colored eggs. Anybody know for sure or actually have them?

    They are cream :) I breed them. The black eggs that somehow got attributed to them are actually laid by Cayuga ducks.

    Edit: A picture for you. Top are CCL eggs, other four are AC eggs.

    Cool! Thank you! Are they steady layers?

    Not particularly - they aren't the best layers. Mine lay maybe 100 eggs a year each, so they're not like leghorns or sex links.
