I went out to feed my hens and I noticed when the one hen went to grab the food with her beak she was drooling. Is this some kind of disease?

separate that bird or at least keep a good eye on it as drooling is ofttimes a symptom of botulism ...

It may have just drank a lot of water. It is worth keeping an eye on her but mine will do that if they drink heavily and then start pecking the ground. How is her behavior otherwise? Is she eating and defecating normally?
