What exactly is Kapparos?

There is a custom performing the rite of kapparot [symbolic atonement] on the day preceding Yom Kippur.

The rite consists of taking a chicken in one's hand and reciting a prayer. A man takes a rooster; a woman takes a hen; a pregnant woman takes two fowls - a hen and a rooster. 

The word kapparot [like kippur] (kaparos, kaporos) means "atonement," so while performing the Kapparos ritual, one should reflect upon one's deeds, and resolve to improve.

The chickens are then given to the poor and the proceeds are donated to charity.
