    They just woke up. One of them went to the water and drank a bit, then after turning around it spat some liquid that looked sticky. I checked her crop and it's empty. Her over night poop looks like a big mass of bright green mashed potatoes. Other than that she acts normally, has a great posture and eats.

    It might be nothing, but I don't want to wait untill I find out. Should I start worrying?

    I had a silkie who did that once. She ended up having a viral respiratory illness. Keep a close watch on her looking for any signs of wheezing or coughing or sneezing or any mucus present. With my bird about a day after she spat up I could hear a slight wheeze. I'm not saying for certain that your bird has this. I'm just saying it could be a possibility and to keep a close eye on her for any of these symptoms. I wish you the best and God bless.
