My hen (5 month old silkie) that I've been nursing with the weak legs is panting pretty hard. She's in the backyard under a tree, but the weather outside is between 85-90 degrees. My month old bantams are also panting. Aracaunas and my brahma seem to be doing OK. Do I need to cool them down? How? I tried to get her to drink water, but she won't drink. Everyone talks about adding electrolytes in the water - where do I get some? Other ways to keep my hen cool and hydrated?
