Unsuccessful at caponizing

Unsuccessful at caponizing

by LK

I purchased 6 chicks from one store this year and 5 of them ended up being roosters. I have re-homed two of them, so still have 3. I would like to re-home one more and keep the remaining two...as pet capons.

They were both so sweet at first, but now the one that was originally so wonderful is very aggressive. The other is not so aggressive towards people, but I have to keep them separated due to constant fighting.

The problem is, I began the caponizing surgery on one of them and could not locate the testes even after following the two sets of instructions/pictures online - the only two I could find after months of searching and working up the nerve to do this.

So, I closed the rooster up, but he's still a rooster. This is disappointing and I feel terrible for doing exploratory surgery on the poor fellow.

Do you have any other photos or how-to instructions to be successful? Seems straight forward, but I have failed so far.
