I like the story and its moral about being free when always telling the truth.

Unfortunately there is of course also an easy escape-road for the butcher.  He just needs to tell the lady that he only has 2 chickens for sale, and that he already promised one to another customer.

But that doesn't change the moral of the story, and that other non-truth might also catch up with him (e.g. the lady asking who is the other customer in case she knows him/her, or the lady asking to see the 2 chickens to determine her choice).
