    I have a 3 year old chicken and she seems fine she's eating well, drinking water acting normal. But earlier today I saw her throw up two times already. Her poop looks normal too. Is it normal?

    Is her crop full and soft? Check the crop again in the morning to make sure that it has emptied mostly. Crop impaction and sour crop can cause the crop to become slow or stopped. What has she been eating? Do you have grit available? Make sure that she has plenty of water available to drink. Probiotics are also good to give a few days a week, and plain yogurt has plenty.
