In the absence of a rooster, sometimes the head hen will take over and try to take the roosters place. Don't be shocked if you hear her crow either! They will sometimes do that too.

The only way to fix this issue is to add a rooster to your flock.

That is interesting. I know I've had female dogs "hump" other dogs (male or female) and was told that's just a dominance thing...showing the other who's boss. Maybe an occasional chicken will show dominance that way as well???
