an egg
I have a BO hen that's 11 weeks old and every time I put a hand on her back very gently she goes into this squat like position. None of my other hens are doing it. My roo really wants to mate. Is she sexually mature? Or is she just sensitive?

A few of my younger ones started squatting quite young; they also started laying quite young. If she doesn't move away I'd say it's definitely the squat, her way of telling the roo it's OK to mate, also her mating position -- and a sign she's near her point of lay.
