Will capons set on eggs?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

So, I've got my coop full of bantam cochins and silkie/bantam cochins and other broody breeds so I'm hoping I can get some broody hens come spring. Anyway, I just butchered a few extra roosters and was wondering if capons would set. I know even roosters will kinda care for chicks but I'm talking actually incubating eggs for the entire time. It's not that I'm out of hens I was just wondering.

 

Thanks!

Nope.  Although somewhat feminized capons are still male.
