When my grandmother Wright made this in the early days, she would also have caught and killed the chicken, then drawn and plucked it. In 1908, she homesteaded with my grandfather in Saskatchewan on a land grant he was given for service in the Boer War. There is no seasoning mentioned in the recipe so feel free to add your own.
