A whole chicken?

I am use to buying chicken parts, I have never bought a whole chicken before. Now that I am on some kind of grilling craze I went looking for a whole chicken. Imagine my surprise when I got to Loblaws and found a whole chicken on the shelf (5-6 pounds) for $26.00. Is this the going rate for a whole chicken? Please tell me if this is what a chicken really costs in this city. Or if I am just looking in the wrong place.
That seems unusually high. Was there something special about the chicken? Free-range, organic, etc.? I buy my whole chickens from Fresh From the Farm and they are $2.80/pound, so my chickens are usually $14 - $20 each.
Yeah that's a lot, must have been free-range.
I just bought my usual three-pack of Lillydale whole chickens at Costco for $21. Downtown, St. Andrew poultry in-between Chinatown and Kensington is very very cheap.
