rooster nails

My rooster has been doing what they do best and my hens backs are getting sore and the feathers have feel out where the back and tail meet. How can I keep this from happening?

You need to purchase some hen saddles. Pampered Poultry sells very pretty ones for a great price. You can also add more hens to your flock to spread out mating more, although this won't help any of your boy's "favorite" hens too much.
