Check out the Silkie chicken, once considered part of the recipe for longevity. It lays only about one egg a week, which can sell for the high price of 6 dollars a pop. Our Swedish reporter Janni visits a poultry farm in Tokyo to see how they're raised, and their feed that contains 16 ingredients including herbs and seaweed. She also tries some fresh Silkie eggs for the first time. Feast your eyes on French and Chinese dishes using the chicken's nutritious black meat. (Reporter: Janni Olsson)
