Howzit Linda,

Winking is often seen in the breeding ready hen. On hearing the breeding song of the cock bird she will assume the mating position and open and close the feeler feathers around the vent in anticipation of mating. This term is called winking which means she be ready, willing and able!

Winking or flashing the hen's breeding ready vent open and closed is a sign that a hen is ready for mating! Great Job, answering this bird brain teaser, Shawn!!
