Hattie turns 3 years old this spring. Or maybe it's 4. These days, I lose track. In chicken years, I suppose she's nearing retirement age, and she kind of shows it - a little broad in the beam, sharply critical of the younger generation and more opinionated than she probably has cause to be, considering that she has never been off the farm. She's barred rock, meaning her color is salt and pepper, crested with a blood-red comb and an eye as accusingly sharp as one trying to pick the purse snatcher out of a police lineup.

Imagine living in Janet Morgan Stoeke’s world. Your neighbors are a feather-headed chicken who goes on joyrides in a farmer’s truck and a dessert-loving hedgehog whose house is decorated in pie motif. It’s a fun and adventuresome world created by Stoeke in her award-winning children’s books. To date, the Virginia-based writer-illustrator has penned 24 stories. No. 25 is currently on her desk, she said. Stoeke is best known for her entertaining Minerva Louise books — quirky stories about a daffy hen and her amusing adventures.

o If you like reading Tim Rowland, you'll love watching him. See what else Tim has to say In Maryland, it is easier (and way less illegal) to donate a dead deer to a food bank than it is to sell a fresh broiler chicken that's been raised on green grass and sunshine to a customer who is eager to avoid meat produced under the conditions of industrial agriculture. But a significant step toward correcting this situation is about to occur, thanks to the work of Del. Chris Shank, Sen. David Brinkley, the Maryland Department of Agriculture and a bevy of local farmers and consumer advocates.

A man who jumped over the counter and robbed Wayne's Country Store in Hagerstown on Thursday afternoon might be the same person who tried to rob a Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant on Dual Highway earlier this week, according to city police. The most recent robbery occurred shortly before 12:30 p.m., when a man jumped over the counter of the store, pushed the clerk aside and grabbed cash from the register, said Lt. Tom Langston of the Hagerstown Police Department. The man, who did not show a weapon, fled east on West Washington Street with an undetermined amount of money, Langston said.

This barbecue chicken recipe features a down-home variation using apple butter, cider vinegar and some fresh herbs for a kicked-up flavor.   For an easy prep, I stayed with boneless, skinless breasts, but you can always go with bone in, and switch it up to include just wings, or a whole bird that you cut up. This recipe includes a sweeter version of sauce so make sure not to flame up the grill. Anytime flame licks up on something it gives the meat a fuel taste and with the sugary sauce it will burn and give the chicken a horrible aftertaste.  So if you need to brush on sauce while grilling make sure you do so near the end of grilling.

After spending a few days in Texas earlier this summer, I felt I needed a spicy edition -  Texas style.  Now as a Pittsburgh fan, Texas has issues for me, but in the food world I'm all over the Texas style of cooking and all things Cue. (That's barbecue.) You can easily change up the recipe to incorporate bone in chicken or purchase skinless chicken breasts.  Scott C. Anderson is associate food service director and chef with Shepherd University dining services in Shepherdstown, W.Va., and Chef Ambassador to the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board.

Real Men are fascinating. We will throw our own children up in the air, spin them 'round and 'round by the wrists like a carnival ride and dangle them off of second-story balconies - yet we will not get within 10 feet of the satellite dish with the riding lawnmower. Too much bad stuff could happen. Kids are resilient, whereas one little bump of the dish could unleash terrors best not contemplated, especially on a ball night. So it is with this in mind that I salute the Real Men who were comfortable enough with their manhood to be seen over the weekend at the Maryland Poultry Swap in Sharpsburg.

Ruth E. Showalter of W aynesboro, Pa., contributed this recipe to the Waynesboro Historical Society for the Historical Society's cookbook, “Culinary Traditions: A Taste of Waynesboro, Pennsylvania.” Showalter said she contributed this recipe in 2001 when the society requested local cooks' recipes for the cookbook. “This is a recipe that has circulated around my community a good bit. It's not original to me,” she said. “The cheese adds a wonderful flavor.” Ironically, Showalter said she would probably not make the recipe today exactly as printed.

Making food can be as ordinary as peeling potatoes or as extrordinary as creating a delicious sauce for the perfect french fry. Being a father is a bit like that. Sometimes being a parent is a delight, and sometimes it's a chore. But, like eating three meals a day, being a father is a day-in, day-out responsibility. It's also an opportunity for personal happiness. Two local fathers, Karl Lehtola of Boonsboro aand Heath Gibson of Halfway, talked recently about being a dad in a particular setting: Cooking with kids.

The Washington Township, Pa., supervisors on Monday quashed changes that would have allowed chickens to be kept in low-density residential zones.  The supervisors unanimously decided to halt efforts to allow chickens on R1 properties. However, they still intend to continue with an initiative to allow hens in forest conservation zones. Supervisor Dick McCracken made a motion to rescind action taken May 20, saying he was confused by what the earlier vote meant. Chickens are currently prohibited in R1 zones, but the earlier vote had authorized staff to prepare legal documents to start allowing them.

Plans to allow chickens in select residential areas of Washington Township, Pa., hit a snag this week. Washington Township Supervisor Dick McCracken told his fellow board members Wednesday that he misunderstood the meaning of his May 20 vote. A 3-2 vote that night authorized municipal staff to develop the legal documents necessary to start allowing chickens in R1 (low-density residential) zones under certain conditions. McCracken voted in favor of that motion, but he said Wednesday he is actually opposed to the concept.
