Where to buy poussins, preferably in Queens?

Anyone have suggestions for a butcher or market that might have poussins (little birds - smaller than Cornish Game Hens)? I tried calling Ottomanelli in Woodside and he said they're out and wouldn't be able to get more in before Wednesday, which is when I'll need them. I'm happy to call around, but not sure where to try.

    Natural market, on Austin St (corner Ascan ave) in Forest Hills always has them.

      Thanks, EricMM! I also discovered that Fresh Direct carries both fresh and frozen, so I've put in an order with them but if they don't come through, I'll give Natural Market a try. Much appreciated!

        International Meat Market in Astoria (36-12 30th Avenue) always has them as well.
