Stewing chicken on the Westside?

I live in Santa Monica, and I'm looking for a stewing chicken. I could go to one of the killed-to-order places in Chinatown, but I'd prefer not to drive all the way downtown. Does anyone know where to buy a stewing chicken on the westside?

The markets I've tried around here just have young birds, and I'm looking for something tough and stringy.

      Yeah, I got one at the Farmer's Market on Fairfax.

      I wasn't too impressed with it. It was kind of pricey and didn't taste any different from a young bird. If I were you I'd either drive down to Chinatown, or make do with a fryer.
