It's not often you look at an animal and think "I bet all the Goth kids wish they had a black chicken like that."
But it's true — some chickens would be right at home in a Depeche Mode video.
Take, for instance, the Ayam Cemani, the Darth Vader of chickens. Native to the Indonesian island of Java, the Ayam Cemani breed has been used in rituals and kept as status pets by the elite for centuries. All visible parts of the chicken's exterior — feathers, beak, heart, tongue, comb and talons — are black, and it would seem as if the darkness should end there. Not so!
