The Java Manhatten Project

When visitors see the Black Java chickens busily scratching and strutting around the barnyard, they probably assume that taking care of them is simply a matter of tossing them chicken feed and filling their water bowls. That is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the museum’s involvement. Behind the scenes, there is a major conservation effort to help preserve this rare and magnificent fowl.
