The Untold Story of Black Chicken
Black chickens, also known as "silkie," are a precious breed with extremely high nutritional value. They possess unique and distinctive physical characteristics. The entire body of a black chicken is black, including the skin, legs, meat, and organs, but they have white feathers. This breed of chicken belongs to the pheasant family and has five-toed feet. Due to their small size and distinctive black color, they are often referred to as "silkie" by the locals.
According to traditional Chinese medicine, black chickens are moist in nature, non-toxic, with a savory and sweet taste. They are suitable for nourishing yin, dispelling heat, tonifying the liver and kidneys, preventing bone loss, and combating aging. Despite their small size, black chickens offer much higher nutritional value compared to other chicken breeds.
