Has anyone ever kept detailed records or knows of a modern era study on the economics of raising capons? At the very least it would seem to revolve around: Value of Meat Bird - Less Cost of Feed = Profit Lots of other costs but if these birds can't recoup feed costs, all else is moot. Secondary avenue to explore is if there would be a modern era market for young capon birds as once existed? This gets to the point of assuming a person wanted to raise and feed capons for personal use or perhaps some niche market, but didn't have the knowledge, ability or resources to caponize the birds themselves, would there be a market for these birds? Would you buy started capon birds if you could?
