It rained hard the other night. She is in a dog house filled with shavings. I keep a board over the entrance, to keep rain/wind out, but apparently it was too windy, and the rain got in and totally saturated the shavings--even where her nest is. Do I just leave her, or should I change out the shavings around her. I really don't want to disturb the eggs, but am afraid they shouldn't be sitting in wet shavings.

What would you do?

Thanks!!!!

I've had that happen and I scooped out the wet and gave her dry and she fixed it up and had a great hatch. After that happened I used a 1/4 drill bit and put 5 little holes in the dog house floor so if it blows in it drains out. The house is sitting up on some 3 inch bricks.
