Black-Bone Silky Fowl With Feathers Removed

Caption: The Black-Bone Silky Fowl, which has a time-honored place in traditional Chinese medicine, certainly lives up to its name. The silky white feathers on the exterior of this odd bird cover black bones and black meat, which researchers have identified as a rich source of a reputedly healthy compound.
