Probably the blackest of all, Ayam Cemani. Black comb, black wattles, black feathers, black meat, black bones, black blood. Even used in black magic :shock:

Not in Oz though but our closest neighbour Indonesia. Central Java to be more precise

Lol absolutely . . . a rose by any other name would still smell as sweet. They are pale pinky creamy ones if that helps tell what she is.
