    Is there any way to safely change the color of my white leghorn hen's feathers to a darker color? My rooster seems to bully her way too much. Hoping that darkening her feathers may make her blend in better....

    Rooster won't be fooled, I guarantee it. Better to keep one or the other separated.

    We are working on building Tom a separate pen...I let the girls out by themselves today after work, and they seemed to enjoy it. And Tom did not pace back and forth as I expected.
