    I was playing with her and suddenly she seemed to puke or drooled some whater out of her beak. Shes really healthy. Shes jumpy and chirps. Why's that what's wrong with her! I have other babys that sleep and run with her. Should I isolate her?

    Chicks can spit up water from their throats and crops if they put their heads down or are squeezed in the crop. The crop is the little pouch on the chick's upper right chest where the water and food are stored after eating until they move on through the digestive tract. It is probably normal.
