In the Brooder
- Apr 29, 2012
I have been on a quest to find the "perfect" partridge rooster. I am already getting a barred holland rooster to breed my BH hens but I am going to have a flock of different breeds of hens and have around 20-25 total so I need another rooster. I am looking at red jungle fowl or a partridge wyandotte rooster, I love the wyadottes heavy plumage but I need a guard rooster, a rooster that is very alert, very tame to me but will attack a predator. My BH rooster will mainly be a breeder but will also be used to help guard the hens. I have no interest in breeding red jungle fowl if I get one. I PREFER a partridge colored rooster that can free roam in a fence and can protect himself and hens. but I have also considered california white roosters, and jersey giant roosters.
