nico d, I posted a pic of an Auburn Jave cockerel with some Freedom Rangers that I had processed in Oct in the "Meat Bird Etc" forum here on BYC (I don't know how to link threads or I would do that). I don't want to post it here because some people on BYC don't want to see dressed birds in most forums. The Meat Birds Etc forum is different because the focus is different. Go to the Search in the blue bar up top and type in Java and chose the Meat Birds Etc forum. You will see the the thread asking "Has anyone tried Java......." my pic and info is there.
javachick, Ditto on the caponizing..........lots of threads about it in the Meat Bird Etc forum.
Javas were one of the original "dual purpose" birds and used to create many of the Heritage breeds. My Auburns come from the Black Javas at Garfield Farm Museum in LaFox, Illinois. I'm trying to help find the lost Brown/Auburn Javas of the past. See behlfarms.com and click on Auburn Javas on the left menu for more info on them. I'd love to see pics of anyone's Auburns.
