Hello again!

I have been wondering if anyone has done capons successfully? Maggiesdad? I have a bunch of chicks hatch  recently and I know 50% are boys and I've been thinking it might be good time to learn how to do it.

Hope all have been well.

Hi NaturesPace! I think you'll find it pretty silent on the forum now a days...but I hope I will be proven wrong and you will get a good response to your post!

Hello NauturesPace, I am no help to you, but I know a friend of ours does it.

Sent away for a kit.  He lost a few birds in the beginning learning how to do it, but then had no problems.  Infection was the worst to look out for.  He really believes in it, swears his birds get much bigger and taster.

Re: Hello again!

I can honestly say I would never do it. I feel it is very inhumane. Sorry. My opinion only.

Re: Hello again!

Hey NaturesPace!

Yes I do, when I'm going to be holding the cockerels past 18-20 weeks. Keeps things a lot calmer when their territorial instincts would be starting to kick in. I could show you how if things would ever slow down around here. Ideally they (Basques) need to be 8-10 weeks, no bigger than 1-1/2lb. So its a kinda small window of opportunity.
