Capons, Great Thanksgiving Alternative

When the celebration of Thanksgiving finally came to our family, due to delay caused by a winter storm, the table was graced, not with the traditional turkey, but with a capon.

A capon, as you probably know is a castrated rooster. Capons not only make a delicious dinner entree, they make great pet chickens, too. If you love the looks of a rooster grazing with the hens in your yard, but are worried it may not be child friendly, a capon is the perfect solution.

They're easy to tame, and you'll enjoy having one -- it's a harmless addition that'll make your flock seem "complete".

Share your thoughts on this below, if you wish.
