    well what size do you want the roo to be at if you want a large roo i recomend the langshan as well if you want him to protect his girls they make a really good rooster but not the most lovey dove as some roosters can be but not agressive

    The BR roo was a good protector but also friendly. but if you see a huge black ugly bird flying into your run wouldn't you hurry up the girls into the coop? He also jumped me once when I picked up his girls. Bit my hand and boy did it hurt!

    I would say orps, silkies, or if they are REALLY small girls, sebrights.
