    I went out to the coop after working late tonight and my sweetest buff wouldn't get up - she had a very runny bum - I cleaned her off and brought her inside and offered her water with electrolites - we've had 99 degree temps the last couple of days, could it be heat exhaustion? She was panting and her crop is not full but her comb is nice and red - can anyone tell me what to do?

    Just keep doing what you are doing and see if she gets better
