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?

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.
