He threw up?!

    Just a few minutes ago I was letting the chickens out and feeding them etc. Last night I had forgotten to movie their waterer from the run to the coop. I gave them fresh water and they both drank a lot. Then they started eating and jacob threw up water. Could this be because he drank a lot of water really fast, like what happens with humans? I hope he's not sick!

    See it happen from time to time in my flocks after they drink allot, they always pick the solids back out of it and go about their business....

    Thanks guys, he hasn't done it again to my knowledge but it's good to know that it happens. He did indeed pick the solids out of it as well, then resumed eating his feed.
