    Oh yeah, I had a pullet that used to burp while she was drinking. I watched her as she was taking a drink and she was swallowing air every time she swallowed. So right after the water went down, she would expel the air and thus a burp! [​IMG]

    As she grew up, she learned how to drink with out swallowing so much air. I haven't heard any burping lately. [​IMG]
