I am going to be living in a tent, on about 10 acres of land that I plan to build a house on in 3-5years, my grandparents are still on the land, and my mom is down the street. So it's not as crazy as it may sound. But we are doing it to save money. I have 5 chickens where I am at now, so I will be bringing them with me, building a small coop until I figure out where the mansion coop will be going as I plan on getting more chickens for the mansion. Back to my question about should I get a rooster. ? Fertile eggs would be awesome, but that wasn't my first reason on getting a rooster. I heard they can warn/protect the flock of predators. Which is what I am concerned about. We will be camping a bit away from the road and my grandparents house, and my grandfather has seen a fox recently, but I am sure there are more animals out there. while we are away they will be in the coop/run, but while we are there they will be let out, and I know there will be work to be done so I can keep look out at all times. My concern about a rooster, is I want it to be friendly with people. Can this be done? Cant they be trained? or is one breed better than the other?
