Ayam Kampong, What's that?


Ayam Kampong

The Ayam Kampong (older spelling) or Ayam Kampung is the chicken breed reported from Indonesia and Malaysia. The name means simply "free-range chicken" or literally "village chicken". In Indonesia, the term ayam kampung refers to indigenous chickens that are raised using traditional free-range production techniques by almost every household in the village. It is a diverse population that resulted from the uncontrolled cross-breeding of red jungle fowl, indigenous Southeast Asian chickens, and exotic chickens of various types imported in the late 1800s by European, mainly Dutch and British, settlers
