    Recently I lost 11 chickens to a family of weasels, one of them was my Dominant Rooster. I need a new rooster to protect my flock, what are some good breeds for protecting the flock. Any help will be appreciated

    Weasels are a night predator and can weasel into very small openings. Check your coop over for small openings to protect the flock. No rooster will protect from weasels or anything when roosting at night. Almost any rooster will protect and alarm the flock in daytime.
