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.

5 of 5 Excellent service and follow through November 30, 2020
Reviewer: Shawn Abrahamse from Santa Clarita, CA United States  
The Schiltz Foods representative Teri was very knowledgeable and helpful in processing my order, answering questions on portion size and recipes for their Capon since I was wanting to cook it in the smoker.  In addition, Teri went the extra step and emailed me links to a number of Capon Recipes off the Schiltz Foods website as well as off YouTube, Pinterest and a few other cooking sites. Far exceeded all expectations.  I will definitely be ordering from this wonderful company again. Teri embodies the customer service spirit.
