Svart Hona Breeding group for sale
1 / 3
4 hens and 1 rooster $300The Svart HonaSvart Honas, also known as Swedish Black Hens, were imported to Sweden in the 1800’s from Mozambique, but Svart Honas originated in Indonesia. A nice straightforward breed to keep, its total jet-black appearance often arouses the curiosity of those who come in contact with it. Svart Hona’s are still extremely rare.The Svart Hona is a Fibromelanistic breed meaning their bones, meat, eyes, comb, legs, and feathers are solid black. There are other breeds that have the fibromelanistic gene which makes them all or mostly black, but the Swedish Black Hen is known as the blackest breed in the world. Another all black breed, the Ayam Cemani, is the close cousin to the Svart Hona. The breeds are extremely similar with most differences hard to spot. Svart Honas should not be confused with its cousin the Ayam Cemani, although they are very similar in appearance. The main difference is that the Svart Hona has a less “gamey” appearance compared to the Ayam Cemani.My flock consists of 4 hens all black and 1 rooster from mixed breeding pens, so they are more unrelated. They are Greenfire farm and Ewes Crazy Farm. NPIP FL. 352 593 XXXXFertility is excellent and coming up with some very nice chicks.
