Capon Leg Quarters
Sizes: 4-5 lb. package
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 Capons are:
- All Natural*
- Never given hormones or growth stimulants**
- Raised on family farms
