    2x Rhode Island Red Hen
    2x Cuckoo Maran Hen
    2x Red Star Hen
    2x Buff Orpington Hen
    2x Black Australorp Hen
    1x Polish Rooster

    Will the Polish rooster be sufficient for keeping the flock in line and protecting them?

    Quote:Depends if you're free ranging. Polish are known for visibility issues due to the head dress. I think they'll work fine, though BO's are more docile and may get picked on, especially by the Rhode Islands.
    Good luck.

    I won't be free ranging, my neighbors are too close. But they will have a pretty huge run...
