How does a rooster behave after caponization? Do they still crow and become aggressive? I would appreciate any information that you can give me on this topic.
Thank you, Carissa
Carissa, caponizing a rooster does not stop it from crowing, nor does it reduce aggressiveness as you would expect.
Sorry to disappoint if that was one of the results you were hoping to achieve.
The only reason for turning a rooster into a capon is so that you end up with a better end product when you finally eat it.
Caponizing is a very invasive surgery that can result in a lot of loses if you don't know what you are doing, so it is best to get a professional in to guide you, and know exactly why you want to caponize in the first place. If it is to stop him crowing or being aggressive you just wasting your time, and putting his life in unnecessary danger.
