Black Sumatra

$4.50

Black Sumatras are a very distinguished, long-legged chicken.  They are still as pure blooded today as they were when first discovered on the remote island of Sumatra in the Far East.  There are a few things that are notable about this chicken’s appearance like the dark to black skin on their face and long tail with black plumage.  Originally bred to be a fighting chicken in Southeast Asia, it was admitted into the American Standard of Perfection in the late 1800s.  Our Black Sumatras are an excellent exhibition choice.
Males are known for their lustrous long flowing tail feathers of beetle-green black that can grow up to 4 feet in length with the appropriate space and care.  Black Sumatra roosters can be aggressive but only to those of its own breed and mainly during breeding season.  Fighting will subside after the season is over.  Multiple spurs are usually found on males and are to be desired for show.
