The Black Diamond Chicken, a Midnight Beauty

The Black Diamond Chicken is a black-feathered chicken with a sprinkling of brown feathers. Their Silkie heritage keeps them on the smaller side, with hens growing to approximately 4.5 pounds and roosters 5.5 to 6 pounds.

Black Diamond Chickens, from our Family of Hatcheries

The Black Diamond Chicken, bred by the Freedom Ranger family of hatcheries, is an active forager that’s self-sufficient and makes a beautiful addition to any homestead.

This chicken is an enthusiastic forager, meaning it will do best when permitted to free-range, eating bugs and vegetation. You will find this breed to be highly self-sufficient and an average egg layer, providing 150 to 200 light-brown to cream-colored eggs per year.

We believe you’ll find the beautiful Black Diamond Chicken to be a wonderful addition to your backyard or your farmyard.

The Black Diamond’s Lineage

The Black Diamond Chicken is a mix of several breeds, with Ayam Cemani being a predominant one.

This breed was developed by Danny Eiland, former owner of S&G Poultry. Danny has spent a lifetime in poultry genetics, and he’s one of the few remaining American geneticists who understands the complicated world of poultry genetics. He adhered to what he calls “The Mixing Pot” when developing the Black Diamond Chicken cross, so as not to lose Bantam Silkie characteristics like black skin, five toes, and soft feathers.
