Have you got to see "Kapuso Mo Jessica Soho" episode last Saturday, October 8 where the show featured the "Blcak Chicken" or "Chicken Ulikba" in Filipino? According to the report the prize of black chicken range from Php 150k to Php200k for 1 kilo due to it's rarity and "healing power", they said. And it sounds to be a profitable business as well. One man was interviewed and he said he tried to explore Luzon and found only two black chickens and he spent Php 25k for it. However, according to him he can sell the two black chicken for Php150k each through a middle man who will do the marketing on the internet
According to the Chinese, who have for millennia eaten black chicken (which in China is called wu gu ji, or black-boned chicken), putting the dark poultry into a stew or soup may be just the thing to cure a cold,cramps, or a headache. Some people have called it an anti-oxidant powerhouse -- a true superfood. Urban Asian markets are where you'll find these midnight-colored chickens, but it's worth the search.
