Here at Roots & Dreams, we care for pasture-raised poultry in an ethical and humane way. We don't clip wings, trim beaks, kill for no reason, or keep our birds in small coops without access to the great outdoors.

Ayam Cemani

Ayam Cemani

 We are passionate breeders of Ayam Cemani chickens, a exotic all-black chicken that provides a ton of genetic challenges as a breeder and intrigue as a chicken keeper. They are full of personality and are individually more unique than any other chicken we own.

We also raise our breeding culls and occasional flocks of Cornish Cross or Rainbow Ranger for the table.
