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.

MERCERSBURG, Pa. - It didn't rain Saturday, so naturally, they ran out of chicken. That was the assessment about 1 p.m. by Dave Burrows, an hour after he and his barbecue crew at the Mercersburg Lions Club Park sold the last of 245 half-chicken dinners they began serving at 10 a.m. at the 15th annual Mercersburg Strawberry Festival, Fun Dog Show and Craft Fair "We had to turn people away," Burrows said.
