Where to Buy? Old Hens/Chicken Bones for Making Stock?

So, with the cold setting in, I've had a craving for chicken soup like my Mom makes. She used to go to a place that sold "live chicken" and bought old hens, slaughtered right there, and made the best soup.

I've been getting organic chicken @ whole foods in chelsea, then making the soup, and it just doesn't compare. plus, the chicken costs about $15!

anybody have any tips on where i can either buy a good, freshly slaughtered chicken (old hen, or if you ave any other recs?) or a LOT of chicken bones (maybe chinatown?). prefer downtown, near chelsea if possible.

thanks in advance!
