    It is HOT and sticky!!!! Absolutely miserable. She is in a bad location....one of the areas a nice breeze is least likely to get in my coop, even with 3 windows and the door open. However, she has refused to leave her spot for two days and she growled at me a bit ago. It is one of my precious BLRW. Her name is Gretel. She only had 3 eggs so I gave her 7 more. She seemed happy to get them. I also filled one of the little mason jar waterers and got her a bowl of food. Now we will see if she changes her mind. If not, my plans for no more hatching were just cancelled by a chicken!!!! LOL
