That does happen with roosters, and I like my hens to look pretty. I bought some of those hen saver aprons for a few of my gals to wear, and they looked so cute. They didn't seem to mind wearing them either.
Roosters are nice because they sort of act as a shepherd and look out for the flock, but if they're mean, I don't keep them. I have two coops. One is the big hen house and I have two roosters, and 9 hens, and the other is my bantam coop, with one rooster and four hens. I do like the roosters because I love to hear them crow, plus, they're beautiful.
