Capon - Not Your Average Chicken
Our Minowa Capons are:
A chicken is just a chicken, right? Not necessarily - a Capon is not your average chicken. Some even call it the 'Super Chicken', due to its rich and tender flavor. Capon is essentially a rooster that is gelded, or surgically neutered at three weeks of age to neutralize the muscular development of the bird. This centuries-old technique contributes to a plumper and juicier bird which also improves the texture compared to a traditional roast chicken.
A Capon is wonderful all year round, and it serves as a tender, flavorful and delicious alternative to turkey at Thanksgiving.

Other Capon Details
Our capons are well-fed until approximately 16 weeks until they weigh 10-13 lbs. This is double the lifespan of conventional chickens, making the birds a special dinner centerpiece throughout the entire year.
The long growing process naturally produces a high-weight bird with well-marbled meat.
*No artificial ingredients. Minimally processed. **Federal regulations prohibit the use of hormones in poultry.
