OK. I know this may sound strange but my Rhode Island Red is in love with me. She used to be very docile and shy until she started laying a few weeks ago. Ever since, she chases me around the backyard and when she gets close to me she "assumes" the "mount me" position. It took me a while to figure out what she was doing. Now when she gets into the position I gently grab her from behind, rock her back and forth (like a rooster would) for a few seconds. She then fluffs all her feathers, clucks and goes about with her day. Its quite amusing to me and I was wondering if any other (male) hen owners have a similar experience? Does she think I am a rooster???
