I have a few questions to ask about free ranging and was hoping someone who does could answer them so here goes 1. How often do you lose a chicken? I have read that a LGD helps keep predators away...Is that true? 2. Is it worth getting a rooster to help protect the flock? 3. If it is worth getting a rooster is there a breed that is best at keeping the flock safe? 4. Will the chickens mainly feed themselves or not? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
