Capon - Not Your Average Chicken

Sizes: 7-9, 9-11 lbs.

A chicken is just a chicken, right? Not necessarily - a Capon is not your average chicken. Some even call it the 'Super Chicken', due to its rich and tender flavor. Capon is essentially a rooster that is gelded, or surgically neutered at three weeks of age to neutralize the muscular development of the bird. This centuries-old technique contributes to a plumper and juicier bird which also improves the texture compared to a traditional roast chicken.

Our Minowa Capons are:

  • All Natural*
  • Never given hormones or growth stimulants**
  • Raised on family farms
  • Fed an all-vegetarian diet
  • Free Range
  • Grade A USDA Inspected

A Capon is wonderful all year round, or it serves as a tender, flavorful and delicious alternative to turkey at Thanksgiving.

*No artificial ingredients. Minimally processed.
**Federal regulations prohibit the use of hormones in poultry.

Additional Information:
Our capons are well-fed until approximately 16 weeks until they weigh 10-13 lbs. This is double the lifespan of conventional chickens,making the birds a special dinner centerpiece throughout the entire year.

The long growing process naturally produces a high-weight bird with well-marbled meat.

Reviewer: Larry Bramble from Long Beach, CA United States  
Have enjoyed Minowa Capon.  First rate and a special treat.  Also, Pre-roasted Goose, Smoked Goose and Goose Breast, Boneless Goose Breast, Rendered Goose Fat - all delicious for home, and I have given Capon, Smoked Goose and Smoked goose breast as gifts.  All are a welcome experience. Five stars for all.

Great product/great price! December 27, 2015
Reviewer: KD from Brooklyn, NY United States  
My family does not enjoy turkey, so for holidays I like to serve capon for a larger crowd, and add variety from our usual roast chicken dinners. I decided to research additional suppliers as I was unhappy with my last purchase from a different online retailer, and was very happy to find Schlitz carried capons, at a much more reasonable price than what I had been paying. The bird was great quality and shipping was super fast. Will definitely shop here again!
