    I know mine drink too much water, and sometimes they put their head down and sortof puke it. I hope that's what it is.

    I woke up this morning to check up on them...first thnig when i saw was her "drooling\barfing" that same liquid from yestruday. I was carrying something, and after she did her stuff THE OTHER CHICKENS PECKED AT IT, and was literally going crazy trying to eat her throw up. Then i freaked out, dropped everything and pushed them aside away from whatever my chicken threw up. Im really starting to think she is sick. The liquid is clear, and thick but, its cloudy.

    -yesturday afternoon i did see a poo that had a strand of something that was orange-red and i dont know if it was hers. I dont know if this means anything because the stool was all covered in blood.

    That's what mine do , the one drools/barfs something on the ground and the rest run over and slurp it up. In the morning, mine make a bee line to the water. Did yours get a drink before this happened this morning?

    About the red in the stool. Sometimes they pass intestinal lining that looks bloody . It' not as bright as blood tho. A picture would help. I would worry about Coccidiosis if she acts sick. Is her crop empty in the morning?
