Ever seen a chicken pant?

It's hot out today. 100 degrees according to the tv, 110 according to the thermometer in the chicken run. The ladies are digging holes to keep themselves cool & panting. This video shows Joanie demonstrating the chicken pant - notice the open beak and heaving bosom? We've given them a birdbath, picnic table umbrella, frozen water bottles, & an occasional hose misting. I hope they'll be just fine.
