    Do you mean what year did they become APA recognized??

    Here's an article from Feathersite about them. It says the earliest mention of them is 1774, that they were introduced to the USA in 1899. It also says the APA dropped them as a recognized breed (no date given) because of declined interest in the breed.

    looks like they are starting a Russian Orloff club to try and reestablish the breed.
