Farmers Markets - Live Chickens

Been to the Allemany markets on several occasions and lately been frequenting the Civic Center Farmers Market. I have seen plenty of live chickens being sold off to the sides. What is the story here? What kind of chickens are they using? Are the people purchasing these chickens typically bringing them home, slaughtering themselves and cooking? I spoke with one customer today who indicated that he was going to freeze one which seemed self-defeating since the entire purpose was to have them fresh. How are these chickens being slaughtered in this environment (not a farm), whats the size, anybody had them and any good? Please advise.
