kosher certified murray's chickens at fairway-whole chicken $1.79/lb!

according to the NY Times, Fairway is selling kosher certified murray's chickens at fairway. Whole chicken are $1.79/lb and cut up chickens are $1.99/lb! Also they are kosher for Passover.

Murray's web site says the following:
Murray Bresky has been waking up with the chickens as long as he can remember. As a little boy, Murray was a keen observer at his father’s poultry business. In the early seventies, he took over at the helm and business has been thriving since.

By 1993, Murray’s love for chickens was matched only by that for his growing family. Concern over the food his children and grandchildren were eating motivated him to start Murray’s Chickens. Raised without the use of antibiotics, growth drugs or hormones, Murray’s Chickens have plenty of room to stretch their wings and access to fresh air and sunlight.

It didn’t surprise Murray: The bird that had the best living conditions, also had the best taste. The Certified Humane label acknowledges the humane manner in which all Murray’s Chickens are raised and handled. Consumers choose Murray’s Chickens for the unparalleled taste and low fat content of the signature breed. In fact, Murray’s was the first chicken to be certified as ‘Lean’ by the American Heart Association and is still the only chicken to be labeled ‘Lean’ by the USDA.

The NY times reported
Murray’s chickens have been among the better birds around. They’re raised locally without antibiotics in certified humane conditions. But until now they haven’t been kosher. In response to customer demand, Fairway has arranged to have some chickens processed in a glatt kosher plant in Rockland County. Kosher chickens tend to have more flavor because they have to be salted. Simply roasted, with a piece of the fat from the cavity parked on the breast to melt for basting, it’s a very tasty chicken. I added no seasoning.
