My hen does talk/quack a lot, but only when something is really bothering her or she's nervous. When I go into their pen she does her quack until I leave. But it's not loud enough that it wouldn't let me sleep.
My hen has also started to pace and check out the nesting spots nonstop in the morning and at dusk.
So maybe yours is disturbed by something or it could just be her personality.
Sorry if I didn't help much.

My wood duck male has been making noise lately. I have a nest box up but have not seen any action. There is an egg on the ground next to their ground box but they do share a pen with my runners it could be the runners egg not sure. Also my male wood duck has been really aggressive and has been chasing my runners around lately is that normal?
