    I'm trying to find a breed that's big and not afraid to go after a predator

    Then you need to find the right breeder. There is no 100% guaranteed predator-aggressive breed, predispositions vary across the whole spectrum no matter what behavioral trait you're talking about in whatever breed. You'll find contradictions to every rule stated in every breed review. The different family lines in each breed can be very disparate, worlds apart.

    Your best bet is to find and talk to someone whose males (and likely the females too) are known to be predator-aggressive. Contrary to some beliefs there is absolutely no need for him to be aggressive to hens, chicks, or humans in order to also be aggressive to predators, he'd have to be basically brain-damaged or bereft of intelligence not to be able to tell the difference, LOL!

    Best wishes with your hunt.
