    OK, my easter egger hen of abut 2 years of age just threw up on me. I picked her up, and her face got red, and she spit a yellowish clear liquid, that lacked any form of solid. Is this regurgitation? Do chickens regurgitate? Is she sick? Please help...

    Thanks

    Is it possible you squeezed her crop when you picked her up?

    I had this happen when my hubby picked our chicken up the wrong way.....looked like she was being sick just the way you describe

    I did have a bit of a panic to start with but she was absolutely fine afterwards so I think he had just pushed too much on her crop

    Worse than having kids isn't it!!! hee hee xxx
