Sumatras

The Sumatra is a rare and ornamental Heritage breed of chicken — originally from the island of Sumatra in southeast Asia. The Sumatra chicken was first imported into the United States in 1847. The Sumatra chicken was recognized by the American Poultry Association (APA) and the black variety was admitted as a standard breed in 1883. Today Sumatras are mostly kept for show and exhibition.

The Sumatra is a lustrous greenish-black bird with a graceful long tail, small comb, black shanks with yellow soles, multiple spurs, and — like the Silkies — the Sumatra has black skin. Their type, size and flowing tails are similar to the Yokohama chickens.

Sumatra chickens are best when allowed to free range and forage. Sumatra hens lay small white eggs and are non-setters.
