    How much for each and are there discounts on large amounts? Shipping per bird?
    Can we have the blackest ones? In our culture the blackest birds are important for us.

    Okay, wow that black comb is AMAZING! How is it like that? Sorry I have never heard of these before and am really curious. Ducklover1 you are so right. Statues they are.

    quoted from feathersite "The most important characteristic of Ayam Cemani is that it is completely black: black plumage with a greenish shine, black legs and toe nails, black beak and tongue, black comb and wattles, black meat and bones and even (?) black blood and organs." [​IMG]

    After researching some I have found that the Kedu has white skin, the Cemani has black so not the same breed but seem to be related. So back to my original question.....will you have full Cemani or are you crossing them and then crossing back? If I am going to drop the $$ I need to know what I am going to work with. The Cemani is on my list but I want pure...all black

    Is the $400 the full purchase price or only the deposit?
