    I am looking to buy a capon or find someone who can castrate a rooster for me. Any breed is fine with me...I am just looking for one to hang out and protect my egg layers, but I don't want fertile eggs. If anyone has one in the Central Texas area, or if anyone in the area can castrate, please let me know! I have a rooster that I would like castrated or I will buy a capon! Please PM me with what you might have to offer!

    FYI, if you caponize your rooster, he'll lose most, if not all, of his protection instincts. He will no longer be a good guardian for your flock. Sorry. [​IMG]

    I did not know that. I really don't want to sell fertile eggs to eat tho. I guess it is inevitable because I refuse to keep my girls penned up. Thank you!

    Don't worry, if you don't tell people that they're fertile, they will never know!! (Unless they know what to look for, and most of those people won't care either way)
