Caponizing as an old-new possibility in indigenous chicken products

Abstract


The indigenous speckled chicken stock was founded in the pilot farm of the Szeged University Faculty of Agriculture in 1977. We keep two varieties of the Hungarian speckled chicken, the feathered-neck variant and the naked-neck type. Because of the spread of intensive poultry keeping the population of this species has become endangered. Hungarian preservation programs supporting ecological-biological farming that began in the last two decades placed the domestically bred birds in the forefront both as purebreds and as candidates in projects for developing merchandisable organic-poultry. Beside the gene preservation, we endeavor to find the best way for the production-purpose utilisation of the speckled hen stock. The experiment was designed to revive an old traditional method, the caponizing, to produce special products with culinary curiosities. The Old Speckled varieties are examined whether they are suitable to produce such products.
