Right next to the chickens in my local supermarket are larger chicken-like birds that are just labeled "large fowl". Any idea what they could be?

Asking the butcher at the supermarket was no help. "Its like a chicken!"

That's some sketchy sh*t right there, when the butcher doesn't even know or is afraid to tell you what it really is....

No picture? How big is it? Sounds like a big chicken.

old chicken? like a chicken past its prime?

Its too small to be a turkey... I would say it looks in almost all ways like a chicken, but the skin is looser/flappier... I bought it once by accident, and it made relatively decent chicken stock...

It's something that shouldn't be eaten until it is positively identified; maybe not even then.
