      I searched for some old posts on this board using key words poultry and butcher and came up with these.

        Sunday Hollywood farmer's market has a couple of different chicken sellers

        1. re: JTea

          KenDor Farms is their name. I believe they're all natural chickens. Their ranch is near Lake Balboa. Good chickens and eggs, too. They're also at the Sherman Oaks Farmer's Market (in the mall parking lot) on Tuesday nights.

        2. How about Azusa?

          Vikon Chicken

          I first saw it advertised at Yum Cha Cafe and I notice on their website its sold at Bristol Farms.

            1. Purveyors vs. growers. Isn't there a difference?

                I always thought of a purveyor being a company like Sysco that distributes or supplies food.

              2. Lilly's and also Healthy Family Farms (stupid name, I know) at the farmers market (SM or Hollywood). I prefer the ones from Healthy Family, although they tend to be larger than what Lily's has.
