The basics:
The Gallina De Mos was created in Galicia, Spain around 1940. The breed was developed from a cross of a local hens. One of these hens was a from the mountains, and was smaller in size. The other hen was from the coast and interior regions, and was a larger fowl.

Interest in the Galiña de Mos lessened when more commercially viable fowl became available, and the breed is now rare. The Galiña de Mos was recognized by the Spanish Poultry Standard in 2003.
