    You know your part of the flock when while doing yard work you find a nest of roaches (yucky), call the hens (mine usually come running) and your side by side moving rocks to find every last creepy one. I did that today with my Helen and Bessie. Helen would wait to see what I could dig up and if she thought I needed help, she jumped right in and did some scratching too. Helen has figured out that human hands can do some pretty neat things.

    Humans could learn a thing or two from our chicken friends.

    you're* (in your title).

    You know you're part of the flock when the chickens fly to you from across the yard to fly on you if you give them a chance.

    You know you're part of the flock when your dominant rooster brings you goodies and "tid-bits" you like one of his hens. It is important to ignore those gifts because YOU are The Boss of The Flock, but it's still adorable to see him do it.
