    Anyone know what this might be? Its water or clear liquid, i have never had any of my hens or roosters do this. She doesnt look ill, but I have separated her from the others just in case. Any thoughts? Thank you

    My EE, after she drinks, if she dips her head way lower suddenly, sometimes she will regurgitate water. Kinda like drooling, and she usually drinks it back up [​IMG] LOL but she is healthy, and I assume the water just tipped out of her crop or throat or something. But it is just water, and just a little bit. If there is actual throw up I am not sure in that case sorry [​IMG]

    how many times did she do it?... Is she still doing it?? If she just did it once or twice and has now stopped then she probably just drank a lot of water and then was running around, or if you picked her up that could have done it too! As long as it doesn't continue she should be fine!
