    Any breeds meaner than others? would a peacock or turkey scare a dog away?

    Where are you at? I have three cockrels and only need one so I'll be rehoming two of them soon.

    i have male guineas and they make a lot of noise when a intruder is in the area. Just the other day they chased 2 yellow labs down the road chattering away. Now i don't know if all guineas are like this but i know mine are lol

    no roosters, toms or peacock can stand an attack from a med size excited dog.

    The only thing such a 'flock guardian' can do is forestall the inevitable.

    u dont want meaner u want faster

    no dog is going to catch a guneafowl or peacock they are fast and quick

    also if u want more chickens get gamefowl something very fast that can fly really high and smart

    dogs cant fly
