After feeding the girls and the man I dumped rinsed and filled the water as usual And a majority came flocking to drink the water as usual. A few minutes later I saw my New Hampshire Abbey open her beak and what looked like water came out. About a nickel sized ( maybe slightly bigger). Didn’t seem to phase her one bit. She pecked it once :sickand strutted off. looked at it and moved it with a stick and seemed just very very slightly thicker than water but that might have been because of soaking into the soil a bit. Do they ever carry water in their beaks and just open? Just a thought since everyone was just the waterer. Or do the spit up even? She acting perfectly normal. Quite active while it was out there and still looks healthy and gorgeous

She probably just drank too much water too fast.

However, I would still check the crop first thing in the morning before she eats/drinks just to make sure it's empty.
