    My two 5 month old polish chickens and another chicken (same age) are drinking and drooling it is hot outside but I don't know if I should be worried or not. The drool is not like thick or gross looking though.

    Every once in awhile, some of my hens will do that also, especially if it's hot outside. I wouldn't be concerned.

    Sometimes when they drink too much in the heat, they'll urp it back up.
