    I'll answer dirty chick first: 1 They are 5 months 2 Yes they have fresh feed, water, ect. 3 We had them off and on with chick starter, scratch, and oats. Now for welasharon: They usually just spit up a clear liquid coming out of their mouth and nose. Thats all thx[​IMG]

    In my experience, sometimes chickens, especially young ones and chicks, will "spit up" a clear runny liquid when they drink too much, too fast. This usually doesn't mean anything, and they are fine.

    Has it been hot and are they drinking a ton of water?

    I would call that slubering or druling instead of thorwing up for referance --might talk to your feed store.
