Nothing is more disappointing than finding a beautiful chicken breed or searching for a specific colored egg, only to find that the internet was wrong. Unfortunately photoshopping photos is incredibly common, whether to make a sale or simply to enhance a picture. Here you will find some of the most common fake chicken pictures on the internet.
Blue Laced Red Wyandotte
This viral photo of a brightly colored chicken makes its way to Facebook and various forums regularly. The image shows a red and blue hen standing in mud with overly green grass in the background. Awestruck viewers share this photo in desperation to determine the breed.
The reality- This is a Blue Laced Red Wyandotte, that is heavily photoshopped. There are no Blue Laced Red Wyandotte’s (BLRW) that look like this. There is some variation in the BLRW coloration, as there are splash, blue and black varieties available. Hatchery stock birds are much less vibrant in color than breeder stock.
Below are two examples of true to color BLRW:
There is a lot of misinformation spanning the internet about the stunning Ayam Cemani. This melanistic bird was once very rare and commanded top dollar, however as their popularity has increased, their prices have fallen.
Photos show a pure black bird, with black feet, combs, wattles and inside mouth. They also show black skin, bones, organs, blood and eggs.
In reality, pure Ayam Cemani do have black feathers, skin, waddles, combs, inside mouths and feet. They also have black meat, bones and organs.
However, the Ayam Cemani does not have black blood, nor lay black eggs. They have red blood like all other chickens, and lay cream colored eggs.
