    If I pick my 10 week old White Crested Black Polish up....water runs out of her mouth. Like she is puking or something. If chickens do puke. Any suggestions?

    Mine have done this before when they were younger. It happens if they've just had a lot to drink, like maybe their water was empty and you just refilled it. Or maybe they just suddenly filled their crop with water because they realized they were really thirsty, then you pick them up and accidentally squeeze a little in the right spot, and boom...slimy water shoots out. It doesn't happen very often, but it has happened to me occasionally with different chicks and all of my birds are perfectly healthy.

    Thanks so much for the come backs. She is doing much better, so I guess it was just full of water. Thanks again.[​IMG]
