I am throwing this out there to see the response, if any. DD is a vet tech, recently returned to PA from Texas, and I have been encouraging her to learn to caponize young roos. She is a single mom and could use extra income. At the very least, I want to get her to do caponizing on our hatches this year since we want to raise the roosters for soup anyway. her sister also has bantam cochins that could use the treatment. Is there a market for this service in the Berks Co area and surround? Anyone know of anyone who does this? I have great faith in her ability to learn this. She has been dealing with animals all her life, is an summa cum laud grad of Texas A&M in Dairy Science, mid-thirties(not a kid). We plan on providing her with enough practice roos to get accomplished at the procedure once we start hatching this year. She assists in all sorts of surgeries in her job. I wanted her to go to the NPIP class in December but the vet office she works at didn't think there was a market for treating chickens in the northern Berks area and she just cannot "take off" for a day. Any input is welcome.
