I was looking for help on deciding a breed of rooster. You better be really good at convincing people to convince me not to get one, I'm looking for help on breeds not to be convinced not to get one. Okay, got that out of the way. I'm going to get a flock of mixed chickens Bantam and full size, haven't quite figured out what yet. I want to get rooster because I liked all of the roosters I have met in person, I'm going to be letting the girls free range, so I want him to be a little bit of a predator protector, we have hawks, coyotes, and stray cats as predators, AND I want to hatch chicks. So, my criteria for a good rooster, is pretty, gentle on the hens, gentle with people, fairly quiet (so my dad won't get mad and make me rid of them, the neighbors are is not a problem, they have chickens themselves!) good against predators and have a nice personality. Whew. Sorry for the novel.
