Yim Gai (Capon)
Yim Gai (Capon or castrated chickens). These are male birds (either Kabir or Isa) that have undergone a procedure to remove their testacles at their tender age. This is a high risk procedure with mortality of about 50%. When the testacles are removed, the testosterone of the male birds are gone, this will in turn cause the birds to focus on eating and growing. The meat will be very smooth and fragrant. The texture is reddish and like marble. Yim Gai is a favorite among Chinese during festive periods and family gatherings.
