    Had she been out of water and you just gave her new this morning?

    Point being if she ran out of water early last night and then got too warm she may have drank to much water. I had this happen once whith a brood hen and chicks during the summer. i think she may have knock over the waterer after I filled it later that day they were panting and I noticed no water and refilled. They chicks all drank way too much and were throwing up watery chick stater and their crawls were mooshy and thier chest were all wet and they drooped around for a couple hours and then were fine. None died.

    ahh i read this before it could be a disease or that she is not digesting properly, what my husband does is pour lemon juice down ther throught to help disinergrate whats in there. And i also do on a regular basis is put appl cider viniger in there water, that way if she has something stuck it will help it go down. BUT KEEP HER SEPERATED. is there blood in her through up?

    There was still water in the bowl this morning. She was fine yesterday just this morning I noticed she was droopy looking and not eating. There's no blood just whiteish looking stuff. I put ACV in their water all the time.

    Ok here is an other thing that we do when they have chest colds or head colds, flem builds up through there through, this is going to sound cruel and icky but it works.
    Take a long feather and stisk it down there throght but when you do that turn it while you are going down, and then pull it out. this helps in a few ways, if she has something stuck , or it helps clear the through if she has lava build up from a cold. and when u see the feather u will know if that is what it is.
