    [​IMG] I don't know if u can buy caponized chicks, I believe u have to wait till they hit a certain age and caponize them yourself. I heard that not too many places do caponization, so u might have to do some research and try it yourself. I have a link for an old Sears & Roebuck catalog that details how to do it, let me see if I can find it....

    IGA stores sell them frozen if that helps. Anywhere with a large eastern european or italian population. They were around 30$

    I'd do it for you! lol!

    We don't use capons around here anymore...broilers are much better feed converters.
