It is around 95 Degrees F here and that is not really normal...definitely a hotter than usual day. (usually 75 to 85 summer in northern lower michigan.) My chicken Princess Laya who is around 7 months old and has only been laying about 2 weeks is acting strange. She is a late morning to early afternoon layer and was due about 1 pm today if she follows the schedule she has been. (about an hour later every day for 5 days then skips a day and starts about10 or 11 the next day. She started her normal laying behavior about 3 hours ago. She digs all 3 nest boxes out to the floor and lays in the same one every day anyway. Silly chicken! Today she just isn't laying but is still in the coop. It's well ventilated but definitely hotter than her normal hot day spot under it. There is water in there and she is laying either in a shallow nest they have next to the waterer or in her usual nest box. But she is panting like crazy and making a weird noise in her throat ...like the noise a person would make if they had a frog in their throat. Is she overheating? Should I intervene or let her lay her egg in peace? She is a New Hampshire red if that helps.
