    My hen yellow is panting alot and breathing alittle faster than usual. Its 50 degrees out but she is also in my coop. The windows are open and its not that hot in their and that makes me curious of why shes the only one panting. I can see her wattles go in and out so she is breathing heavier. She is behaving normaly.

    Yes she is 5 years old.
    She is taking about 8-9 breathes every 15 seconds.
    I'm thinking impacted crop because her crop feels like a full water balloon and she keeps drinking something coming up from her crop. It feels like her crops full of liquid, when I picked her up I got alittle bit of clear liquid on my hand from her. What do I do?

    Well, my hen's still okay. Her abdomen is full of liquid still and feels kinda like how my hen Rosie had an infection. I'm giving her antibiotics and electrolytes. Maybe that could help your hen too Cage10.
