Is my chicken jealous?

One of our two Brahma hens seems to like me. She always comes up to greet me when I enter the back yard. She follows me around. She always loves it when I pick her up and pet her.

Lately this week she's been aggressive though. But it's only when I pay attention to any of the other hens. If I'm petting one of the other hens, she'll come right on up to peck them. Then if I HOLD another chicken, she charges me and tries to peck my feet!! Then she stops when I put the one I'm holding down. Today I was holding our Araucana hen. Then when I put her down, the Brahma came right up and started attacking her!! I had to pick her up to get her to stop!!

Is the Brahma hen getting jealous? Or is it something else?
