I am going to get 6 hens, and we are going to be letting them free range in our big backyard. Problem is, we have A LOT of huge hawks around here and other predators. I know that you are generally not supposed to have a rooster with a small amount of hens, but in this situation do you think we could? Is there any docile rooster we could get that wouldn't be too much for the hens? We are on a tight budget, and I would love to make a huge run for the girls but we sadly can't.
