    Hello, I just got six new baby chicks yesterday. They were all fine last night, but when I checked on them this morning my Pear White Leghorn has a trail of wet feathers down her chest. I watched her for a while and every time she goes to take a drink a little runs down her chest. Of course, now I'm paranoid and feel like she's drinking excessively, but that's possibly just because I'm now convinced she's sick. None of the other chicks are having this issue. Any advice would be much appreciated as I have never had chickens before. Thanks!
