Would "Plutôt cette poule" or "Cette poule plutôt" also work?

If you are at the market place choosing something to cook for tomorrow's lunch, probably not.

Why isn't there a verb? I would have expected "c'est un poulet, plutôt".

I think this sentence is made to fit in a very particular context, so the verb is implicit. Something like: a butcher is talking to a client, who says "I will take a duck", then the butcher points to a (more expensive) chicken and recommends "A duck? [take] this chicken instead!".
