|Wyandotte possible capon|
Now, I get to watch him closely. In a few days, his comb and wattles ought to go back to chick-pale, and he should calm way down and decide his sole purpose in life is to eat and get big.
I am going to caponize (or at least attempt to) all the cockerels from Ideal that I got in January. I decided against keeping any of the red broiler cockerels, and also against keeping any of the Gold-Laced Wyandotte cockerels because they are on the scrawny side for Wyandottes. The pullets aren't impressing me much, either. Ah well, it was worth a try and Ideal is the southern-most major chick hatchery to my knowledge. I'll have to see how well the four largest GLW pullets lay.
