Hey out there....so I got home from work and all my girls were at the run door with a big welcome...the usual...then I noticed they had somehow got their little door to the coop closed for who knows HOW long while I was at work. Checked a few of their crops and they were flat as a pancake, so I'm thinking they must have been stuck outside most of the day with no access to food, which they always come inside for throughout the day. They do have water outside though. So I let them all in and they immediately started to eat and I went up to the house to get out of my work clothes. I come back down and my BR who is usually the one always at my feet curiously pecking at everything is off to the side doing this weird thing with her neck...almost like trying to throw up. And her neck looks kind of lumpy although when I run my fingers down it, it doesn't really FEEL lumpy. I watched her for a good 20 minutes doing this. She let me pick her up a couple of times and feel her neck which is NOT like her. Then I notice this strand of bubbly "snot", for lack of a better description, about 3 inches long coming out of her mouth. I pulled it off and it just felt like spit really and it didn't smell like anything. Any ideas? I can't get her to drink. Can chickens get stuff stuck in their throats? From maybe eating too fast? Maybe it'll just work itself down? She seems to be breathing mostly OK, although every now and then a hear a throaty rasp and she's definitely not acting "herself". OK I admit it....I'm officially worried.
