I have never in my life bought an entire bird. I had trouble even finding them at Cub but I checked back on Thursday night and they did have some Perdue for $1.99 a pound. I prefer getting some preseasoned quarters, which Cub sells for 99¢/pound and are way easy to cook.
I only buy the 4.99(US) (6.86 AUD) rotisserie cooked at Sams.
We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.

At my local Sprouts, it's $1.99/lb, for about 5# bird -- "all natural", cage free, no antibiotics, etc.
If you break down the whole bird yourself, you can have the pieces exactly as you want them, plus have all the bones for yummy stock! (I like to leave both breast halves together on the sternal ribs & keel; break apart the sternal ribs from the thoracic ribs; then roast that whole assembly hotter than you'd do a whole bird. It cooks much faster without getting dry. Leg/thigh stays together at the stifle, & usually gets a braise. For the wings, humerus & radius/ulna are usually left together; wing tip goes into the stock pot; can either pop the wings into the dark meat braise, roast quickly beside the breast, or freeze til you get enough to do a wings specialty dish.)
Agree with Ice Man...the identified shooter was Orlando Anderson. LA Times has a very good story running on this. Witnesses that were quoted but chose to remain anonymous tell stories...a dead man is given the guilt.
