Stewing Hens / Stewing Chicken in South Bay / Santa Clara area?

vprasad | Apr 7, 2010 11:42 PM

Back in the north east, stewing hens are relatively easy to find at supermarkets. I've had no such luck here in the south bay, checking the major names (safeway, pw market, lucky, trader joes, whole foods). I don't see them by the bagged poultry and when I ask, a lot of the guys behind the counters have no idea what I'm talking about.

So my questions--
does anyone know where I can find stewing hens for sale in this area?
what exactly does California do with its hens that are too old to lay eggs? Surely they must be sold somewhere in these parts.
