Twice Cooked Chicken Stew
by Jennifer Sartell from 
Iron Oak Farm

When I say "twice cooked" the first "cook" I am referring is roasting the meat and veggies, where major flavor happens.

The second "cook" is in the traditional crock pot, where all the flavors meld, and get extra tender. This would work perfect for leftover roasted chicken as well.

Giveaway: Four Matted Chicken Prints

Tilly's Nest

Hands down, Sarah Hudock is one of my favorite artists. I reached out to her to see if she would be interested in doing a giveaway here on Community Chickens.

Of course being a fellow chicken keeper, she was excited to do this giveaway in our community!

The Beauty of Patterns ...

Lessons Learned From the Flock

Jan Brett was at the Northeastern Poultry Congress this weekend. She was showing her birds and in her spare time, she gave an art lesson and signed copies of her new book, Cinders.

She modestly said that her drawings didn't do the chickens justice. She pointed to the feathers of the bird she was holding and asked, How anyone could draw such intricate beauty?
