This is an idea I have... We all hatch out too many roosters, right? I'm thinking about getting hatching eggs for a very gamey breed, like Asil, and let one rooster free range with the hens while the other roosters are "on reserve" in separate pens. If a predator shows up, the main rooster will fight it. If rooster can get a few good licks in, the predator will probably think twice about coming back. When the main rooster dies in battle, then rotate one of his brothers in to lead the flock. The worst predators we have are coyotes, and this is only for daytime. Does this plan make sense?
