    I have an 18-19 week old Black Bearded EE hen. I have had her since she was about a week old.

    For the past week, I have noticed that the feathers on her chiny chin, look wet.

    In the past 2 days i have SEEN her throw up? It's a liquid that come pouring out of her mouth. Looks alot like water...

    She eats and acts fine. She still drinks, but too much?

    I don't know...

    I'd check her crop; it should be empty first thing in the morning, full at night.

    Are they awfully hot? They will drink a lot of water when hot, sometimes to excess.

    Just a couple of thoughts.

    she could have a sour crop--check to see if that may be the problem and give her some bread soaked in olive oil to eat that should help if that is the problem..
