Gallus gallus minimus

This Sunday, I am preparing the Frango Piri-Piri dinner (Saveur, May/June '02) for 12 people. Having secured the exotic piri-piri chiles, I'm now in pursuit of several 1.5-2lbs. chickens. Suggestions? I would really, really like to get the freshest chickens possible.

I went to Alliance "Pollos Vivos", on Chicago, minutes ago. They rarely get chickens that small, and today's smallest was 3.25lbs.

Thanks in advance,
Erik M.

BTW, I could not find the dried piri-piris called for, ANYWHERE. I did, however, pick up a few jars of pickled piri-piri chiles at Sam's Liquors. [You know, the food market in the back corner.]
