Entente Européenne (EE)

The European Entente was founded in 1938. As an organization of public utility, the EE has set itself the task of bringing together all the European organizations of small animal breeding. The association is interested, with all its members, in technical problems related to the breeding of indigenous breeds of small animals but the aspect of exhibitions and appreciation of animals is very much supported within this organization . One of the objectives of the EE is the application by judges in a uniform way, of the standards for the European races. France is a member of the EE through the Central Aviculture Society of France (SCAF) and is inclined to have the decisions taken by the EE adopted by the different technical bodies of France.
The European Entente supports the organization of the European Championship of the Orpington.
