    Was it all clear?

    This happens to me sometimes- My chickens will go and drink a load of water, then I pick them up and they, well, puke it all up. If this is what happened, it is rather normal.

    *HOWEVER* if it was brown and smelly, and she is acting weak, or has a pale comb, etc, it may be because of sour crop.

    Quote:In that case, I wouldn't worry too much. It's hot just about everywhere right now and the chickens are drinking more water than they normally do.
