    I am looking in to getting a Rooster to protect my flock of four ducks (Black Swedish, Golden 300 Hybrid Layer, Khaki Campbell, and White Layer) from predators. I am in constant fear that a racoon will get them and I'm wondering, What is the biggest, toughest, most overprotective breed of chicken? [​IMG] . I think, when we order some more ducklings we will include a cockerel too. That way he can grow up with ducks and think of them as 'his flock'. Thanks

    I heard Geese are good watch dogs, but thats what I've been told I have never owned a goose... or a duck... I have plenty of roosters right now and they aren't very "protective" yet...
