    Hello and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Is it unusually hot where you are? If they are all panting, not used to the heat, they are no doubt over heated. If this is the case, you might leave a fan running in the coop to stir up the air at night. I do this alot on warm nights. Not directly on them but blowing the air around them. During the day too.

    Good luck and keep us posted! :)
