So last 2 days my hens stopped laying and I’m not sure why. It’s been really hot and my hens are all panting and doesn’t move much. I tried putting their feet on cold water but they keep going away and then I sprayed the grass bht they are still hot I gave lots of water and I didn’t see them drinking water. What should I do? Rn they are dust bathing

How old are they? They may be stressed for some reason. It was hot in my chicken coop one time and my chicken went in there to lay her egg and died. Be careful.

The excess heat can cause it. Molting can cause it. Where is shade for them? Wet the shaded area down. Put them in their run, wet the run down. Wet the roof down. Get a fan.
My chicken run is all shade because the roof is wood
