    Ok, just a few moments ago my RIR roster was drinking water and saw that his "buddy" was with HIS girlfriend. He ran over to "break it up". Water was squirting out of his mouth, it went about a foot.. the water that is.
    Is this normal? I have no idea... Let me know if it's not so i can do something about it:/
    thanks!

    Its not a trick. After chickens are done drinking if they get squeezed
    hard of something of that matter the water comes back up out of there crop.

    ok, so it's not a good thing? This was the only time i saw him do that. And maybe he got "squeezed" when he was ?mating? (sorry, i don't know the right words to use for chickens.)

    And yeah, i was joking about it being a trick.
    Thank you.
