A small, plump chicken [with or without a comma]


Spanish - MX

I am eager to learn whether or not a comma is employed, in such an example as below:

A small, plump chicken

A small plump chicken (without comma)

Is there a general/universal consensus as to whether a comma is or is not employed in such examples as the one above? Or is it really a matter of personal opinion/preference, as to whether to include the comma or not?

    I don't think it makes any difference. Sometimes the comma makes a significant difference to the pronunciation, but not here: saying it with or without a comma doesn't give two different meanings.
