My new layer (1 week now) has been walking around with her wings slightly out. Like when she squats and spreads her wings. It’s warm, but certainly not hot (Highs in the 80s) They aren’t panting. My other big girls haven’t started to lay yet, they are all 19 weeks, but I have some who may be getting close. I noticed today another girl with her wings spread. Is that normal for laying hens? Or close to laying hens? Or are they indeed just hot?
