I agree. I won't try caponizing my birds. I just don't like the thought of actually cutting a bird open without anesthesia and removing the testes. A vet would never do that and most of the civilized world would be disguisted to even learn that it happens.
Boy things sure have changed since Hector was a pup. Back in the 50's we injected a pellet into the back of the neck just below the comb. Just pull up a little flap of skin pop the pellet in and grab the next bird. Used to do hundreds of them in a very short time. Chemically neutered in a second with no discomfort to the bird.
