There is a critical chicken shortage in NYC?

Can't you just go to any grocery store or butcher shop and get a whole chicken?

For a fresh unroasted unfrozen one, give one of these places a call: http://gothamist.com/2013/08/14/the_best_butchers_in_nyc.php. I like the Meat Hook in Brooklyn.

I would go to Whole Foods. There must be one near you, there are quite a number in New York. My next choice would be Gourmet Garage. There are multiple locations of that as well, or Fairway Market..Perhaps it would be a good idea to call before you go. You might be able to reserve one.
