    I went down to my barn and found this unusual, strange, and kind of disturbing sight. My Rhode Island Red hen was on top of my Golden Seabright hen. They are in the box that the y'all lay eggs in, but really? Do we have to get atop one another to lay eggs?

    At first glance I couldn't even see the chicken on the bottom.
    They sure do keep us entertained!

    They sure do! Strange little animals for sure! I couldn't find her, went to collect the eggs, and there she was underneath the Rhode Island Red!

    Chickens are such strange animals sometimes. I don't think I would have a baby on top of my friend haha.

    My pair is a PR and an OEGB. Strange to reach under the big girl just to find the little one. They tried to brood by commity this summer.

    I've seen up to four chickens try to fit into the same box, but not really on top of each other like that. Especially since they have so much room around them.
