Hello, welcome to BYC! I don't have an answer for you, but I know some of the things you're going to be asked by people who do.

What does she eat normally? What about treats? What is her coop/run/bedding setup? Flockmates? Does your flock have any history of any diseases? Does this hen have any previous medical history? How old is she and how long has she lived with you? When was she last wormed? With what product?

And everyone always always wants pictures, so if you could get some clear ones or even better a video of what shes doing (youd have to upload it to youtube or somewhere else and link here) that would be awesome.

Gasping can be a sign of a respiratory disease or infection. It also can be from overheating, or can be seen with ascites (water belly.) More rarely, gapeworm could cause gasping and gaping. What is your location in the world?
