    I would go with a light breed. They are always faster at spotting danger than my heavy breeds.

    Nothing crested, no polish or silkies. I would watch for too big of a comb, we had a leghorn who had a huge comb and it hindered his vision. I thing a game rooster would be good.

    I have 1 white leghorn, 1 rhode island red, 1 game, and a lot of different game crosses. The game and leghorn are the 1st to alert the others, but the rir is louder.
