This photo in Russia and shows a variety of chickens being raised by German-Russians.
Many are similar to the chickens my relatives, and, now my parents raise on their farms here in the USA.

CHICKEN AND DUMPLINGS
|One of my favorite meals my mother makes is CHICKEN AND DUMPLINGS. Hmmmm Hmm. Makes my mouth water just thinking about it.|
Prepare Dumpling Dough which will
make about 8 medium size buns
1 large [about 4 to 5 lbs) chicken fryer or old stew hen cut into basic pieces (legs, thighs, breast, back...)
8 cups chicken broth (two cans if unseasoned broth)
1/2 cup of diced carrots
1 large diced yellow or white onion
1/2 cup sliced celery
4 large potatoes diced
Salt and pepper to your taste
Add water as needed.
Large heavy kettle with lid.
Directions for cooking:
My mother always made the white smooth raised dumplings that were done to perfection. They remind me of the delicious steamed buns served in Chinese Restaurnts.
Not everyone made raised dumplings. See dumplings for he variety of rescipes you can make.
I've learn you can use ready made bread dough or Bisquick dough as replacement.
