Watch the video tutorial called "Image to Vector Logo". Then let us know what particular step is causing troubles.

After you use the chicken to create vectors, you need to rotate the picket to horizontal and do a little node editing and then fit curves to vectors. Then I'd throw away 3 of the four quadrants as they are distorted in the original picture. Copy the one good one and join back into a full design.
