About Kapparos:

In the days preceding Yom Kippur, the Kapparos ("Atonement") ceremony is performed. 
We take a live chicken (a rooster for a male and a hen for a female) and, circling it three
times above our heads, we declare: "This is my replacement, this is my exchange, this is my atonement; this fowl shall go to its death, and I shall go to a long, good and peaceful life." 

The value of the fowl is then given to the poor, and its meat is eaten in the Erev Yom Kippur
meal; some give the fowl itself to the poor.
