Sulmtaler chicken - ´the culinary heraldic animal of Styria´

Thanks to dedicated and plucky breeders, the Sulmtaler chicken - once so popular - was not merely saved from extinction but initiated its triumphant conquest across the countries of Europe once more, recapturing and vindicating its top rank in both the Styrian poultry yard and in international gourmet cuisine.

Under the aegis of the Sulmtaler Vermarktungs GmbH (Sulmtaler Marketing Ltd.) the re-introduction of the Sulmtaler is now being implemented  - not with this aim alone, however, but with an aim of finally instituting safeguards, once and for all, to prevent this natural breed from ever falling into oblivion again. In cooperation with the universities of Marburg and Laibach and under the umbrella of the European Union, the Sulmtaler will be recovering its ancestral position as "the culinary heraldic animal of Styria" in the time ahead.
