I remember as a child going to some place in Brooklyn with my grandmother where they kept live chickens in cages or wooden boxes and you could pick one, they'd kill it (wring the neck?) and you'd take it home. I think there may be still some in Chinatown. Who knows where else these places exist?

    i don't remember chickens, but i certainly remember doing that with live rabbits.
    in parts of little italy in philly, people still do that.

      It's fairly common here in the Chinatown section of Boston. They use to keep them in crates on the sidewalk but somebody or some group complained now they are in a back room or the basement. They have live ducks also. Chow Jim

        Providence RI in Little Italy has such places. Also my farm.
