    Well Rhody is a 2-yr-old RIR hen and she has a habit of throwin up after she drinks. She has no problem eatin though, at all. None of my other chickens do that that I've seen either. Her crop dont feel strange at all, and she acts completely normal, so I'm plain stumped!

    Maybe she just likes to over drink? If she acts healthy and fine, I wouldn't worry about it.

    One of my chickens did that when I first got her. I had no idea why she did that so I took her to the vet. The vet said it was sometimes a sign of worms and gave her a worm shot. She hasn't done it since.
