I've made her an apron, what about the feathers on her neck?

    Cloud, Milo's favorite hen has been getting rooster damage lately on the back of her head/neck, and on her back. I've made her an apron that I can put on her tomorrow, but what do I do about where he grabs on her head?

    Could you try something that tastes bad, like Blu Kote? I've used it on the neck of a hen before, and it seemed to help. And it makes her feathers such a pretty purple color....

    It's not bloody or anything though, just missing a few feathers.
