    Hello and welcome to BYC!

    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.
