Trader Joe's sells certified organic chickens for $2.XX/lb. Not bad. Whole Foods sells them too and I've seen them for <$2/lb on sale, but a sale is rare. I don't really eat chicken much, and in the rare event I do, I typically buy CAFO chicken breast. Not too concerned. I eat more wild salmon and Australian lamb than I eat chicken.
Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.
If you have a farmers market (and you must in CA) you can find pastured organic chickens. The ones I get eat bugs etc. They are really good, a little expensive but the leg/thigh packages are in line with TJ's organic prices.
I'm not sure that is what Mark gets- but in terms of the cleanest, humanest raised chicken, that's pretty much what you can get.
