    I believe Thomas Naegele who wrote most of the information for Feathersite about the Kedu Cemani has both breeds in the US.

    I corresponded with him a few years ago when he inquired about my Spitzhaubens.

    I don't have his email anymore, but you could probably Google him.

    Good luck !

    I would love some of this breed too if I can find someone from the us. My parents raise some that has dark skin or blueish skin but I think it's a mutt breed.

    Toni-Marie Astin in Georgia has them, but dont believe she is selling any just yet. Saw them the other day, they are awesome. No all these black skinned projects are not going to be anything like them. There's way more to them than just a little skin color. And they are JET black on the skin too by the way, at least good ones are. inside and out

    Quote:care to elavorate on "How special" these birds look?

    All I see is a Single Comb Fibromelanotic extended Black bird, how hard is that to reproduce?

    cant be more difficult than to breed Black Silkies

    A melanized(Extended Black, FibroMelanotic, id+ Melanotic, ) Leghorn will fool many people into believing it was a Cemani... will it be a Cemani? No, but I bet the Cemani Tastes like chicken [​IMG]
