    With a heart as black as our souls, Indonesia’s Ayam Cemani are our new goth dream queens. Known for their distinct melanin pigment, these birds are entirely black, from their feathers all the way down to their organs and bones. Thought to be the bearer of good fortune and prosperity, demand for these chickens have increased over the years. Today, a single bird can sell for $700-$1,400 USD on the market.
