There is a few of the Black Tongue that is now in the US and is currently being perfected for any and all genetic requirements.

      Thank you for your correction Sir. We do appreciate it 🙂
      We have established our business since 1999 and to be honest, we have never found Cemani chicken with pure black tongue.
      Based on the observation, the black tongue can possibly exist but only in the chicks. But when they grow up, the color is fading away.
      It can be dark grey, pink, even white.

      In Indonesia, Cemani black tongue is highly hunted. It is because people’s belief with the magical power of it.
      Due to this reason, there are some Cemani breeders who manipulate the color of Cemani tongue.
      They deliberately manipulate the color of Cemani’s tongue to be jet black to sell well in the market.

      And we do apologize, we need to clarify one thing, Sir. We have never shipped any kind of chicken overseas 🙂
