    Correct. Hmong chickens are Vietnamese Ganoi. Do a Google search for Ganoi and you will find a lot of info.......Pop

    Oh, Hmong. I'm familiar with the Hmong people of Viet Nam but have naver heard of Ga Noi chickens referred to as Mong [or Hmong} chickens. Ga Noi are one of several breeds of Vietnamese chickens. Another from the list of Vietnamese chickens is the Ga Mong. Ga Noi have been in the US since around 1990 but are pretty hard to find.

    Well, i'm Hmong and my parents talk about "hmong chickens" all the time, but they're really referring to chickens that they owned while they lived in Southeast Asia. It's kind of hard to find information on it, but here's an article i read a while back.

    ftp://ftp.fao.org/docrep/fao/010/a1057e/a1057e04.pdf

    They just refer to the chickens as "indigenous chickens" with their local names, like Kai Ou, Kai Horn Chou, etc. The word "Kai" just means chicken in lao. The closest labeled breed would be the Red Jungle Fowl, however the hmong chickens you speak of have black hens. There are also some black boned chickens that the hmong people raised, but those are hard to come by. Hope that helped a little.

    edit: my parents say that hmong chickens have white skin, dark shanks, dark colors and are slow to mature so the only breed i know that fits that description is the Langshan, but i'm sure there are others.

    ah, those are like ayam cemani or chickens of those types, i actually have 2 hens that have black skin/bones/organs, but no rooster so no babies, but this one hmong breeder near me will have some chicks soon that i'm going to purchase so i can raise my own for eating. But if you look up ayam cemani, they fit the description you're looking for. Hope that helped!

    I don't have the contact for her (it's an old retired hmong lady that raises chickens for fun). I go through a co-worker to contact her because she's her aunt? something like that, but next time i go to work, i'll inquire if she's willing to give out her contact info.
