Is it bad or good?

I have a hen that keeps getting fertilized by the roosters. She gets attacked by them almost all the time. She's not my only hen. But for some reason they always want to fertilized her.
Is that bad?

I have 4 roos and about 9 hens. I'll have to count the hens again. But I know I have more hens then roos.

No shes not laying. I don't know why they always mate her. Maybe because shes a bantam?

3 too many roosters. She may not be laying because of the stress from being mated all the time. If she's the lowest ranking hen, she will get more of the mating.
