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.

Roasting Instructions:
  • Thaw in the refrigerator for 1-1½ days or in cool water for 4-6 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 325°F.
  • Remove leg binding to open body cavity. Remove neck and giblet package from body cavity, cook for stuffing or refrigerate until ready to use.
  • Rinse and drain capon.
  • Salt if desired.
  • Place capon, breast side up, on rack in roasting pan.
  • Cover roaster and place in pre-heated oven.
  • Allow approximately 25 minutes per pound cooking time for an unstuffed capon*.
  • Uncover capon for the last 45 minutes of cooking time to brown, or until desired color and meat thermometer registers 180-185°F. Legs should move easily in their sockets.
  • Allow to cool slightly before carving.
  • Refrigerate leftovers.

*Dark cookware may shorten cooking time.

Reviewer: Jennifer R. from Chicago, IL United States  
We really enjoyed the capon. The right size. I did it with a 'foie gras' stuffing. Yum! Delivery was on time. The bird came perfectly packed. Order process was easy. Thank you Schiltz, we will order again next year.
