I ate some of my first capon last night and again for lunch today. The meat is not as tender as that of the Cornish cross nor was it as tough as an old rooster. It had a noticeable difference in texture. I didn't notice a difference in taste but I might if I could try a bite of capon then a bite of the Cross. I'll have to try that next time. The capon was twenty eight and a half weeks old, half light Brahma half Easter egger. I did not weigh the bird but I would guess about 3 lbs. dressed. Not very big. I think I will try to caponize Jersey Giants next time around. Another thing that I noticed is that the internal organs are harder to remove than that of the cross.
