The Mallorquina is an old Mediterranean poultry breed from the Balearic Islands of Spain. It is thought to have been developed on the Island of Mallorca, but may have come from the Iberian Peninsula. The breed was standardized by the Breeders Club of the Balearic Islands (Associació d’aviram de les Illes Balears).
Today, the Mallorquina is extremely rare and in desperate need of preservation.
