I heard stories of my grandfather bringing home live carp and keeping it in the bathtub in the Bronx, until it was ready to meet its maker - i.e. my grandmother, who even a carp would be afraid of.

there’s quite a few live poultry places left in brooklyn, the one that’s closest to me smells so bad that eating something that came from that building is inconceivable.

Are you near La Pera?  That's where I'll sometimes buy a few birds. They don't smell that so bad once you get them home, but yeah, the place has all sorts of live fowl, and even goats/lamb sometimes, so it sorta smells like a barn/farm.


Here's the thing - I don't think you really want to eat a freshly slaughtered bird; instructions from La Pera include soaking the bird for a couple of hours in cold salted water, and not cooking it until the following day - the damn thing is stiff as a board before it relaxes out of rigor.

I feel bad for you Wilf, because it seems as if you get the bad stuff, be it here, Frenchette or Le Coucou.
