We have run out of stock for this item.

A capon is a special type of chicken that grows up with a rich diet of milk or porridge to make the meat more tender and less gamy.  The lack of testosterone makes for a more tender, flavorful meat that is a delight compared to regular chicken. 

This poultry was once considered a luxury, and during the early part of the twentieth century, the capon was the chosen bird for Christmas feasts, especially for the wealthy. Working-class families saw capon as a rare treat because it was quite expensive.
