The basics:
The Catalana chicken breed is a Mediterranean-type breed which was developed in Catalonia, Spain. According to the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy (ALBC), "The breed was introduced to the rest of the world at the 1902 World’s Fair held in Madrid, Spain. It was favorably received, and, by 1949, had been admitted to the standard in America as a recognized breed. The Catalana chicken attracted a limited following in the U.S. and Canada, but was popular in Latin American countries."
