    I am not sure, but I think I read here panting is a sign of being in pain. Put panting in the search and see what comes up. Chickens "fake fine" for as long as they can. Check her belly for fullness, discomfort, is she laying?

    Can you post more info about your hens' conditions? The second thread under the "Emergencies" heading on the list of threads, is a "sticky" thread with suggestions of info to list to get the best assistance for a sick bird.
