When we used to keep chickens in the same barn as the sheep, sometimes the chickens would use the sheep as a stepping stone to get up to the manger where they roosted. It didn't do much for the fleeces due to the occasional "accident," but the sheep seemed to enjoy having the chicken on its back for the moment. The sheep would try to peer around to look at the sheep on its back at the same time proudly showing off. "I have a chicken on my back and you don't."
