Ok, a number of questions:

How old is he?
Has he been checked for parasites?
Was he vaccinated for Marek's Disease?
What do his stools look like?
Is he eating and drinking?
Where is he being kept, could it be too hot or too confined?

Tell us some more and perhaps we can help.

He is almost a year.
No he hasn't been vaccinated or checked for anything.
He was out in his coop.....actually no, he was laying out in the run. I just brought him inside.

I'm sorry i don't have anymore info.
I just brought him inside so i don't really know too much.
I noticed he was acting funny the last couple of days....just not being himself

Can you post a picture of him. When you say panting - do you mean open mouth breathing? Are his wings extended/hanging down and away from body? Is he laying down or standing in one spot? What color is his comb? Have you felt his crop for impaction?
