Food dishes are an excellent place for hens to make love to themselves, because they can press their vent against the edge of the cup. If your hen starts cooing in the food bowl again, take a close look at what her backside is doing.

As for the calling behavior: is it possible that she's calling to a bird that she can hear outside? If one of your neighbors got a cockatiel recently, they might be calling back and forth, or there might be a wild bird that sounds sort of like a cockatiel.

It's best to discourage her from laying eggs. They can't be fertile since she doesn't have a mate, so they're just a useless drain on her physical resources.
