I've also been asked to print out the Breed standard - managed to get it translated from swedish to english (thanks to a FB friend) Julia has put it into "real" English - this will be the first time they've been seen by the exhibition world!! in fact not many people have seen them in real life (except at chicken village) !!wonder what they will make of them
- one thing for sure is that they are proving to be very good layers and their eggs are eyewateringly huge !! - the ayam cemani is much more a game bird, as you say, than the Svart Hona which is much more a Utility bird (but I personally didn't like my meat looking as though it was already burnt before it was cooked) the flesh is a very dark grey colour!!
at least the Rare breed Judge knows about both Ayam cemani and the Svart Hona, as it's him that's doing the article in FF
My only worry is that the male will moult!! with only 2 adult males in the country hatched in august 2010 - ... I might just be pushing it a bit!!
if not I'll show one of this years males (5 males hatched this year - one since culled) I'm going to have to be ruthless in culling any with any that aren't perfect!!
