Where can I buy chicken skin by itself?

Any ideas? I live in Hayward, but am willing to travel a bit, if necessary.

Obviously, I can buy whole chickens or chicken parts, but that's not an affordable way to get the skins by themselves, which I intend to grill (as I enjoyed recently in a Japanese restaurant).

Since skinless chicken is so popular nowadays, there must be quite a bit of skin that is removed before the skinless chicken parts are sold—what happens to that skin?

I've tried a bunch of local markets, including Asian supermarkets, as well as standalone butchers, and so far, no luck.

If anyone knows of a poultry processing plant in Bay Area (preferably the East Bay), perhaps they could help me out. I know Petaluma is the place to be for chicken—the drive is an hour from Hayward, which I'd rather not do, but perhaps I will if that's the only option.
