    That's a rooster's biological responsibility - ALL of them will do that. The key is to get a rooster that's not going to try to take you out in defense of his hens.

    There are lots and lots of mutt roosters on CraigsList, many for $0-10, and they would do just fine protecting your flock if you have no breeding objectives and just want to make more chickens.

    You can try any breed of Game roosters. They're good at free-ranging, and I've heard a lot of good stuff about how they treat their girls.

    Never heard of or known disappointment in American Gamefowl, Oriental Gamefowl, and Araucanas (real ones that don't have any tail)
