Hens who are solitary, hens without a rooster, hens who were separated from their flock and other situations can cause a hen feel like crowing.
Here you have a nice selection of crowing hens:

I once had a hen that crowed. Acted bossy around other hens and when a rooster was put with them, she was very intimidated and avoided him. Also, she never laid a single egg.
