    Tomorrow is the day I try my capon experiment. I have 9 partridge rock roos and a red laced white cornish that are being deprived as I write and will go "under the knife"as soon as I get home from work in the morning. I'm so nervous! I let them run free around the yard yesterday as a peace offering for the starvation, lacerations, nut cutting and possible death that will be taking place in now less than 24 hours. Not a good trade off? Well it makes me feel better! They had a pretty good time. Wish me luck, for tomorrow I will be either triumphant or squashed. I'll let everyone know how it goes and maybe even throw in some pictures if its not an utter failure!

    Anyone with last minute advice is welcome!

    Best of luck. Wish I could summon the mojo to follow through on caponizing.
