    Which breeds go broody and are good at avoiding predators? These would be breeds that a pretty self-sufficient.

    I am thinking the Dominique is good at avoiding predators and somewhat broody.

    The Red Jungle Fowl would probably also be good at avoiding predators and this breeds goes broody.

    I think the breeds with a little wildness in them will be the best at avoiding predators. So the Cubalaya makes sense.
