Question: My pullets are panting, I clipped their "flight" wings today and it is hot. So I put some ice in their coop in a bowl, gave them scratch and mealworms as a treat. I worry that I have stressed them out too much. Any other ideas to cool them down and de-stress them.

They should calm down at least by tomorrow. Keep water available, don't force anything down. If you see them have the runs, that's normal for a stressed out chicken.
