    I don't have a pic or vid. I wondered the same thing, Now 2 of mine are starting to squat. It happens usually when you reach for them, they put their wings down on their sides and put their butts down a bit and sometimes hold it for a short time. It was only about 1-2 secs when mime started last week. So yes you will know it when you see it.
