A couple of my hens pick on the others. I've received advice from several people that Pine Tar would give the attackers a bitter taste if they pecked the slathered hen. But my question is this: How do you apply the Pine Tar? Do you just smear it all over the hen, or something? I tried one hen that way, and she didn't like what I did. She preened herself and ate ALL of the Pine Tar! She seemed to enjoy it too. What can I do to convince the hens to keep the tar on, and still put it on her right?
