    I was just outside giving the girls some sunflower seeds. One always jumps up on my lap to eat; after she gobbled them up she sat for a bit and then threw up about a teaspoon of tan water. I imagine she had just had a drink and then ate too fast but I have never had that happen before so I don't want to underreact. Is this regular behavior? I don't see anything (else) wrong with her.

    I wouldn't worry. If she just had a drink of water, she probably just ate too fast afterward.

    thanks, all. It was quite a surprise...to both of us, I think! and she IS a pig, for sure. That's why she jumps up-to get her own handful.
    glad to know she isn't sick!
