The basics: The East Frisian Gull is a old landrace breed developed at the beginning of the 19th century. The breed was created in East and West Frisia, and Westfalia. The East Frisian Gull is thought to be closely related to the Brakel and Westphalian Totlegern. Its unique name comes from the chicks appearance being similar to that of Seagull chicks.
Over time, the East Frisian Gull became very popular, and spread throughout Lanover, Lüneburg, Minden, Osnabrück, and Stade. However, today the breed is endangered, with only approximately 1,000 birds birds registered in Germany.

Smells nice dry good for chickens
I've bought large and small pine shavings, and I definitely prefer the smaller pine shavings. Some people complain that chicks will eat the small pine shavings, but I haven't really had that problem. If you have small pine shavings in the coop, it will stay dry, and it's easy to clean out with a kitty litter scooper. As the bedding breaks downs, as long as it's dry, you can just add more shavings. Other may swear by hay or sand, but I'm pine all the way. .
