    I have noticed my 2.5-year-old buff Orpington hen has been losing fluid out of her vent. It looks clear and bubbly. I was wondering if this is anything to be worried about? My other chickens look fine. I also have not changed her diet in a while (she could have been eating cherries off of our tree though).

    Welcome to BYC. Is it hot, and is your chicken drinking a lot of water? Do you have any pictures of her droppings?

    Hi, it is about 90 degrees ferinheit here. She has been drinking water, but I don’t know how much. Also, one of my other chickens forces her away from the waters. Also, I do not have any pictures of her droppings right now.
