    I got my first green egg from my easter egger today. When I tried to get it she kept on pecking my fingers... Is she broody after her first egg... Is this un heard of? I took the egg and put a eggshaped rock under her... She did not notice.

    Some just don't like you in their "business" I doubt she is broody but, if she is still setting there after a week you can either break her or give her some eggs.

    We can't have roosters where we live:( So I am scared to have her hatch chickies.. We're you recommending fertilized eggs?

    I was but that is probably not a good idea for your situation. In the unlikely event that she is a broody search "breaking a broody" on the site there are many different methods but each hen is different as to what works.
