    I have no idea what it is, but I know my turkey just threw up clear phlegm-type dribble. It was strange. So I came online to see what it might be.

    Well, she is just perfect now and no more spit up. Just like a baby, is uppose. The turkey will be great!

    My dark brahma use to spit up quite frequently. I just chalked it up that she was an over drinker. After 8 months or so, I never saw her do it again and I spend a lot of my time with them.

    As long as they are active and healthy, I wouldn't worry about it.

    Yes it sounds like you have an over drinker on your hands. They normally grow out of it. :) My barred Rock hen did that as a chick her name is duck since she gulped her water not sio it like nirnal chicks. Lol! Good luck!
