  2. They think you are a Rooster and they squat!
     
  3. If you have ever saw chickens mate the hen squats for the rooster.

    It's when the hen "assumes the position" for the rooster.....[​IMG]

    If they like you well enough, they will do it for you too when you reach out, because you feed them.....They look at you as a rooster....
