Where can I buy "real chicken" in Brooklyn??

Even the organic, natural, free range chickens in the supermarket appear to be marinating in some kind of watery blood solution. Is there anywhere near prospect heights that sells chicken that wasn't abused and isn't swimming in water? I'm looking for something that might be described by misty-eyed retirees as "tasting like chicken is supposed to." Thanks for the help!!

  1. The Meat Hook in Williamsburg/Greenpoint has wonderful "real" chickens. I also hear that the Greene Grape in Fort Greene (and closer to you) has an excellent meat selection.
