    No chicken lays black eggs. Any pics claiming to show such are photo-shopped. However, Ayam Cemanis is all black; even the inside of the mouth (but they lay cream colored eggs, not black).

    the breeding sites say cream colored eggs. Just wonder why this "friend" claims her black hen lays black eggs.When will I learn.

    Agreed. Black Cayuga duck eggs are striking to look at. :eek:) The darkest eggs in the chicken world are the chocolate eggs (very dark brown) laid by breeds such as Marans, Welsummers, Barnevelders, Penedescencas, or Empordanesas.
