    HELP.... I hate to ask..[​IMG]
    Our Black cochin hen seems to have a problem...
    She is eating and walking all over BUT as everyone
    got cooled off by the frozen bottles and misters in the
    yard she was still panting... Then I thought I saw her
    but. Now you all know they have huge fluffy butts so
    I thought that was wrong. YES it was wrong. She has
    some type of swollen round lump kind of high above her
    vent. I soaked her in some cool water and she seemed
    stop pantting but went right back to it as soon as we put
    her in a kennel. Is this maybe just the heat or should I
    worry?
