I buy organic most of the time, and I shop at the natural/organic grocer Whole Foods. Whole Foods chicken has no antibiotics, no added injections, are fed vegetarian diets, and have plenty of roaming space. Organic chicken is the same, except without any injections im assuming? So my question is, is organic chicken really that much better to buy? Is it worth it? Or is the regular Whole Foods chicken (or rotisserie chickens) just as fine to buy?

Organic chicken will have been fed organic feed. If you are concerned about pesticides, then organic is best. The pesticides build up in the meat over the life of the chicken. If you buy organic vegetables and fruit, then you should be even more concerned about organic meat as the levels of pesticides can be many times higher than those found on vegetables. I wish I had a study to link to, sorry can't think of it right now.
