Eer...how was she acting like a rooster? Crowing, mounting...?

The only real way to get her to stop would be to introduce a rooster. When roosters aren't present, instinct will sometimes drive one hen over the others to fill the position.

Yup, that's it. Mounting in chickens is like mounting with dogs. It's not always a display of mating; it can also be a form of dominance.

Question: How old is this bird? Are you sure she's a hen? There's absolutely no chance it's a rooster?
