Strange behavior

I have 9 Embden geese, I am the only one who feeds and takes care of them. One of my females has taken a liking to me I think. If I sit anywhere around her she will come up to me, climb in my lap and and pick at my clothes. She will also stay close to me (within 25 feet) any time I am out in the yard. When another female started to have an interest in coming closer to me, she threw a fit and ran her away. If I pick her up, she lays her head across the top of mine, or put it on my shoulder. My wife says she thinks I am her mate. This concerns me, I only have 4 females to 5 males as it is. Can anyone explain this and maybe suggest what I should do?
