In order to reinforce the understanding that I am the boss rooster in Marion's mind I make a point of insisting that every hen I can catch squats for me. Today I managed to lure Nugget, one of my more skittish hens, into my hands for some petting and when I put her down I made her squat with my hand on her back while Marion watched from a yard away. Noodle, my friendliest hen, was not happy to see me giving my attention to a rival. She came up and pecked the hand that was on Nugget's back. I caught her and made her squat but didn't reward pecking with being picked up and petted. It was all I could do at the time to maintain a calm, straight face while I looked Marion in the eye and maintained dominance over Noodle. After I got back inside I laughed myself silly over Noodle's hen jealousy.
