kirin keiki: sweet and dumb

(no subject)

Up here the supermarkets have something called a New York chicken, generally a 'soup chicken' but sometimes a roaster. It's usually split in half and looks weird, even for a chicken. I assume with the soup chickens that the guts are intact, is why all the weird stuff, but even the skin looks funny. Age?

Googling reveals nothing about New York chickens as a breed. Anyone know anything?
