Capon Classes

Cockerels at Waddle Bock Farm are caponized at aproximately eight weeks of age.  Capons do well in a mixed flock, are tolerated by most roosters, and can be kept longer than fast-broilers without developing ascites, problems walking, or abrasions of the breast and legs due to excellerated growth.
 
 
Raise your own meat birds without having to deal with the heart and leg problems experienced by many fast-growing broilers.   
 
Make use of the extra males in your hatches. Rather than dispatching your extra cockerels, have them caponized.  Raise them with your flock, allowing them to forrage, and you'll be rewarded with a delicious meat bird when they're ready to butcher.  
 
 
Attend a caponizing class at Waddle Bock Farm. Become a part of the movement to revive this agricultural art, to make use of male chickens as meat birds that would otherwise be dispatched on hatch day.

This is Stripes, a capon in residence at Waddle Bock Farm.  Some people want to keep chickens as pets.  In neighborhoods, hens are preferred, as they are generally quiet and have the added benefit of providing eggs. Caponized cockerels grow into quiet, gentle, elaborately-feathered birds.  Extra capons at Waddle Bock Farm are allowed to forage for bugs and other tasety natural treats. Our capons are ignored by our uncut roosters,  and they make excellent company for our hens.
