True, I don't want the cornish crosses since they HAVE to be butchered at a certain point or it becomes painful for the bird. With Capons you can butcher whenever you feel like it without their weight having a negative impact on the bird. If you know you have time to process a flock of meat birds all in one day then cornish crosses are probably great, but if you want to maybe do one a week you can raise all the capons together and just pick one out without having to worry about the other capon's meat getting tough or them becoming unhealthy.
Interesting. We just usually off our roos or get them to some locals before they get too aggressive.
