Sulmtaler poultry

Over the course of time, it was found that the original quality of our chickens, appreciated all across Europe, had vastly deteriorated. Around 1900, the Association for Animal Protection and Rearing in Celje, Slovenia, at the instigation of Armin Arbeiter and Emanuel Martiny, founded an institution to save the Old Styrian poultry and to select the breed systematically. Its stated goal was a return to traditional Styrian poultry farming, so as to restore the status quo ante, prior to the introduction of foreign chicken breeds.
