Hi all,

One of my hens has been panting excessively lately. I didn't think too much of it because we had a bit of a heat wave and everyone was panting more. However, it's cooled down (low 80s max) for a few days now and she's still panting more or less nonstop, often with her wings slightly held out. Everyone else has stopped panting.

I examined her and found two things that I think are abnormal. One is this white buildup at the edge if her mouth, pictured here. The other is that her abdomen feels distended. I'm not sure how these three things could be related, if they even are... any ideas?? View attachment 1896666
