    I am getting 6 hens and wanted to add a roo into the flock just for protection. I need a friendly breed that will be good with kids. I don't want to be attacked when I enter the coop. So now I'm down to brahma or orpingtons... Which is a better roo?

    Well I don't mind size. Actually, heavy breeds are good. Does anybody have a roo that's good with kids and a gentle giant? Any breed.

    Sussexs are good to people and they are known for being friendly to other roos.

    Plymouth Rocks and Rhode island are the worst to people.
