Origin, diffusion and economic characteristics

Spanish breed in danger of extinction.

It must be named after the order for which it was selected. It is one of the breeds that retains the closest similarity to the Gallus bankivia, considered the ancestor of domestic chickens. Two theories on its origin are considered, the first claims that it was introduced by the Phoenicians and Carthaginians 3000 years ago and the second that comes from the wild cock of the Mediterranean.
It is present in most of the Spanish territory. The Jerezana variety is mainly found in Jerez de la Frontera and La Canaria in the Canary and Balearic Islands. However, most of the specimens of the breed are found in the provinces of Cadiz and Seville.
Cockfighting is generally prohibited in Spain except for Andalusia and the Canary Islands; today it is also bred for amateur purposes.
