Where to buy una Gallina?

I guess its that simple. After being a vegetarian for a bit I have forgotten where I used to buy gallina to make a special soup that I loved. I sent a friend the recipe but I need to help her find the gallina! I'm pretty sure I got it in west harlem where i once lived but if I could find a place closer to brooklyn or anywhere else in manhattan that would be great!

  1. you should be able to find an old hen at any of the chinatown butcher shops; don't have a specific one in mind but the place at the corner of grand and forsyth has stuff like that in the refrigerated cases. or the deluxe food market (the one that traverses mott and elizabeth.

    1. Is the soup called sancocho?
