Thank you so much for the welcome and good advice! I didn't know that about the 10:1 ratio, that's good to know. We mainly meant to keep the roo for flock protection, but I think they may be all right on their own. I let them out sometimes when the weather is nice to free range, and we've actually lost one silkie and a mallard when they were out. We never found them, just up and disappeared. Do you think the roo would be good to keep for protection?
Great point about the kids - hopefully we can undo the damage that's already been done. My 4 year old was attacked by one of the roos early on and it really scared her, understandably. :(
