Cutting up a whole chicken for the first time seems intimidating, but it turns out to be really easy and pretty similar to carving a cooked whole bird. And once you learn the process, you have a skill that makes local poultry really accessible, gives you a lot of flexibility in the kitchen, and can save you money! (I totally mangled it the first time I did it, but it was still edible and delicious!)
Here are a few links to videos illustrating the process:
