    when the chickens are in the coop we always find the laying on the smallest chicken. we have 6- 2 rocks 2 leghorn 1 n hamp red and partridge rock ,the partridge is the smallest and that is the one they lay on...she was sun bathing the other day and one of the rocks went over and layed on her is this normal? she doesn't seem to have any marks on her or feathers missing.

    She must be comfy-- sort of like a feather pillow. No harm = no problem.
