    My young broody hen just hatched her first lot of chicks yesterday. Today I noticed her comb is very pale and she had been panting or just hanging her mouth open. It was a little warm today but not over 18 degrees. I'm paranoid she'll drop dead! I've been offering her water and food and she takes both. Just worried!
