This past Saturday I went to a farmers market near downtown St Louis. It has been years since I have been there. But when I went on a regular basis there was always a guy selling live poultry. As I turned the corner I saw him stuff one, what looked like golden comets, after another into boxes. A lady and several man were standing there watching him do all this. So after the transaction was completed I walked up and started talking to him and I had purchased poultry from him in the past and to my surprise he remembered me. So I asked how many chickens did that lady buy? He said, "60" Wow, I said what does she do with them? He replied "she owns a Chinese restaurant in South City and she uses the meat in certain entrees" I said "I wonder where she does the processing? and I can't imagine that meets health code". He said "that's why I won't eat Chinese on this side of the river" He is from Illinois. This guy buys "spent" hens from free range operations around him for a $1/hen and sells them at the market for $3/hen. He said he can sell all he can get his hands on at the market and the most he has sold in one day was 150.
