Depends on your land lay out.
A male gos could be good and good fun on other stuff.
If you want a longwing then a female pere saker or tri bred would be my choice. This may sound silly but make sure they are carrion crows and not rooks. If they are crows then they can be tough customers and thats why I mentioned a female pere saker. Ive seen 3 flown at crows and everyone was just the ticket.

Then id say a male gos. Also sounds like now wouldn't be a good idea. Try and get someone to help you near by.
