    I bought 5 ayam cemani chicks, or what I was led to believe was 5 cemanis with known imperfections. Ie a white tongue or toenail. I was fine with that and happily paid 125 bucks. As they grew I noticed that their feathers were starting to have grey/white lacing.. and the feathers around their necks seem to be turning more white. Don't get me wrong they are still black everywhere else, feathers, skin, comb , beak, feet etc. I thought cemanis were totally black as in no lacing? What could I have unknowingly bought???
