    at the zoo usually
    Appellation d’origine contrôlée (AOC), which translates as "controlled designation of origin" is the French certification granted to certain French geographical indications for wines, cheeses, butters, and other agricultural products, all under the auspices of the government bureau

    this is what google says about it. Sorry I can't help further though

    Quote:I'm from Malta Europe. In europe these d.oc. are hard to get but quiet common, think it's not popular in us.

    Oh, like champagne must come from the champagne region for France, roquefort must come from a specific cave, etc.?

    How does this relate to chickens? (I do believe there is something about using the breed name of marans, though)

    its like the Pullet de Breese in France. They have the D.O.C. on this breed so, no other counrty can name them the same. In the US they named them (Pullet de Breese )blue footed. we're intrested in doing the same with a breed named "Black Maltese"
