Hello, I'm Dr. Bob.
I apologize for the length of time this answer has taken to get back to you. I just recently was asked by the site moderator to try to help you. Short of rehoming your rooster, the best solution to this problem I've come across is a protective vest for the hen called a "Hen Saver Vest". You can read about and purchase these vests online here: They work quite well without harming either the hen or the rooster in any way. Please let me know if you should have any additional questions.
Kind regards, Dr. Bob
