Live Poultry for Sale on Spring Garden

Yesterday, I noticed Q and Q Live Poultry store on Spring Garden, between 11th and Ridge.  This morning, I googled it and came across this amazing video.  

Although the cages the birds are kept in do not fit into my mental image of humanely treated animals, they all come from local farms (PA, NJ and NY).  I have to believe that eating birds killed the day you want to eat it tastes better than any other alternative.  I don't think I'm ready to give up buying my poultry from Greensgrow, Headhouse Sq or the Terminal, but maybe one day I'll give Q and Q a try.  Would you??


  1. there is a place like that on oxford ave-by deveraux on sat. it is a zoo--haha.
    many people walking out with a bag of bird.
    I say YUK. but it is probably very tasty.

  2. shall we have a taste test?
