Where can Capon Chickens be found in the Cary area?

  1. A thread on this same topic from 2007 says you can get capons at Whole Foods. Give them a call. [see old thread at


    The only chicken I know with a cape on was my favorite cartoon chicken - Super Chicken.

      You knew the job was dangerous when you took it.

      (Sorry. Couldn't resist.)

        That was SC's story and he stuck with it. I don't know if Fred ever agreed.

    2. I saw Capons in the freezer at the new Harris Teeter in Durham the other day. So if you have a nice Harris Teeter in Cary, I'd check out their freezer.

      1. In addition to the other Whole Foods recos linked, I've occasionally seen poulet rouge capon from Joyce Foods in Winston Salem at the North Raleigh WF, and expect it can be ordered. I like the poulet rouge chickens there; it is apparently a French heirloom breed, free range and local. The chickens tend to be smaller than other varieties and have a somewhat meatier flavor. Between that and the Baldwin Charolais grass-feed beef they also sell there, I'm all set with high-quality French "heritage" meat varieties.
