The Black Sumatra is an ancient and primitive breed reputed to be one of the best fliers in chickendom, having flown over 8 km on prevailing winds from the Indonesian island of Sumatra to the island of Java. The inhabitants of these islands kept these birds solely for cockfighting. The breed was first imported to the United States in 1847 from Sumatra. In 1883 the Sumatra Game was admitted to the American Standard under the name of the Black Sumatra.
