Does stress make chickens throw up?

we finally moved our baby chickens to their new coop today. They range in ages 12-7 weeks old. Before today they have been in a small coop on our patio. Almost instantly I’ve seen a few of them vomit (like a clear spit up), could this be stress related? What else would cause this? Some of them have done it more than twice today. I had never seen them do this before moving them.

I would check their crops first thing in the morning before they had anything to eat/drink. The crop should be empty then.

Sometimes as @Alexandra33 mentioned if they over drink water for some reason, they can have water come back up if, especially if they bend over.

Also think about how they were "moved" were they handled/carried? Is it possible that they way they carried that water was pressed out of the crops.
