Capons

Two FromWhiteDogHill American White Bresse capons, and some of my EOxBJG capons (25-1/2wks). The White boy with the redder comb heads to the table soon... :eat: No. 2 will go in September. The Old lit says 8 months is optimal for boys that have been fixed.

Re: Capons

Will be curious to see what you think of the White Bresse taste like.  The meat is supposed to be one of the tastiest??

That's what the French say!  Plus some Americans that I have read behind, that have traveled to France and eaten them there.
I processed two slips out of this pen that were developing rooster-like traits, and they had fat next to their gizzards the size of my fist!  :excited: (Scott has bean 'learnin' me about schmaltz  :eat: )

Re: Capons

Do they live peacefully together once they're altered MD? Do you have any of the same age kept as Roos to compare to?

Re: Capons

Yes, their demeanor is very different from a rooster. They sit around a lot, flat on the ground. I never see my roosters do that. They still have a pecking order, tho. They will pull feathers out of each others butts and necks, mostly for getting some choice real estate in the shade or on the roost at night.

The EO cockerel from Mike is the the same age, they hatched Jan 8th.
